In the wake of the World Cup kissing controversy, FIFA has provisionally suspended embattled Spanish football boss Luis Rubiales for 90 days.
Despite increasing pressure from the government and Spanish football, the 46-year-old has refused to step down.
Last Sunday in Sydney, Australia, during the awards ceremony following Spain's 1-0 victory against England, he grabbed midfielder Jenni Hermoso and kissed her on the lips.
Mr. Rubiales had been banned by FIFA from "all football-related activities at the national and international level," the organization claimed.
"This suspension, which is in effect as of today, is for an initial period of 90 days," while Mr. Rubiales is subject to disciplinary action.
33-year-old forward Hermoso said that she "in no moment" gave her consent to the kiss. Days after Spain won the World Cup for the first time, she and her colleagues have vowed never to play for Spain again.
The country's football association backed the president, who claims the kiss was consensual, and threatened legal action on his behalf.
The federation released a lengthy statement earlier on Saturday and included a number of pictures it claimed proved Mr. Rubiales was now lying.
Mr President's feet are ostensibly lifted from the ground as a result of the player's action," the statement said.
"The tests are conclusive. Mr President has not lied.
"The RFEF and Mr President will demonstrate each of the lies that are spread either by someone on behalf of the player or, if applicable, by the player herself."
The statement threatened legal action, saying that playing for the national team "is an obligation for all members of the federation if they are called up".
The federation said it regretted the row was taking away from the World Cup success it wanted to celebrate.
