The former Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales will appear in a Madrid court this Friday over his kiss of football forward Jenni Hermoso following the country’s win at the World Cup in Australia.

Rubiales has been summoned by a high court judge to appear in court this week to respond to the accusations of sexual assault and coercion that have been levelled against him.

Last week Jenni Hermoso filed a legal complaint against Rubiales kissing her on the lips during the team’s World Cup celebrations.

Tabitha Monahan is joined on the Indo Daily podcast by Dave Hanratty from the Irish Independent and Miguel Delaney, chief football writer at the U.K. Independent, to look at the scandal that has rocked the world of football and ask if football is in in the dock as the sport comes under more and more scrutiny.
