Rubiales' mum is 'prepared to DIE' as she continues church hunger strike amid calls for him to quit over kiss storm | The Sun
‘KISSGATE’ football chief Luis Rubiales’ mum has said she is prepared to die to get “justice” for her son.
Retired hairdresser Angeles Bejar is now more than 24 hours into the hunger strike she launched yesterday morning at a church in the Costa resort of Motril near Malaga.
She told a Spanish TV station in a dramatic WhatsApp exchange from her religious refuge: “I will stay here as long as my body holds out.
"I don’t mind dying for justice because my son is a decent person and it’s not fair what they’re doing.”
Overnight it was claimed she snuck into the Divina Pastora Church near her first-floor apartment home by telling a cleaner she was going to “say a prayer” for Luis, now facing a criminal probe in his homeland for kissing player Jenni Hermoso following Spain’s World Cup Women’s win over England in Australia just over a week ago.
Angeles, 72, is said to have taken advantage of the moment the cleaning lady entered the church to mop up the floor and dust down the pews.

The feisty OAP picked her moment while the priest was on holiday, a Spanish local claimed.
She remained inside this morning with her sister-in-law Mari Carmen, with a doctor expected to make a new visit later to check Angeles is doing okay if she decides to continue with her extraordinary protest.
She is thought to be drinking liquids, with reports water and isotonic drinks are inside the church sparking speculation she could be inside for several more days.
The whereabouts of her son, who has been suspended for 90 days by Fifa, is unknown.
