Luis Rubiales resigns

It was the outcome that many have demanded for weeks: Luis Rubiales, the embattled president of Spain's soccer federation, has left his job.

Rubiales said in video of an interview released on Sunday that he was resigning "cause I cannot continue my work."

He told interviewer Piers Morgan that friends and family had told him "to focus on your dignity and to continue your life, cause if not, probably you are going to damage people you love."

Spain's soccer federation confirmed hours later that Rubiales had submitted his resignation and had also left his position as vice president of UEFA, the Union of European Football Associations.
