DJ apologises after asking Ballon d'Or victor Hegerberg to twerk

Ballon d'Or: Ada Hegerberg asked to twerk on stage after winning women's award

Host Martin Solveig - a French DJ - made the inexplicable decision to ask Hegerberg to twerk.

Lyon striker Hegerberg made history by becoming the first female victor of the award at Tuesday's (AEDT) ceremony, organised by France Football. Hegerberg, who previously became the first woman to win the Norwegian Gold Ball for the best footballer in Norway, thanked her teammates, her coach and the president of the club, Jean-Michel Aulas.

Hegerberg was the leading scorer with 15 goals as her team, Lyon, won the Champions League for the third year in a row. She has 250 career goals in the league.

Dane Pernille Harder and German Dzsenifer Marozsan rounded out the top three, while Brazilian Marta was fourth.

Then imagine, amid the joy of being on stage to accept the award, you're asked if you know how to "twerk".

"For the first time a woman will win football's highest honour". She reaffirmed on Monday to The Associated Press that she will boycott playing for Norway at the Women's World Cup in France next June because of the disrespect she believes female athletes face in her homeland. "We've stopped talking about development and other countries have overtaken us".

His countryman Kylian Mbappe won the inaugural Kopa Trophy for the best male player aged 21 and under.

"I also want to thank France Football".

Hegerberg is the first ever victor of the newly awarded female prize, making history. Because no matter the heights a woman reaches, she will always be valued for certain things. "It's a huge step for women's football", Hegerberg said. That is the key example of what female athletes face on a near daily basis.

The men's Ballon d'Or was picked up by Croatia and Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric, who ended the decade-long monopoly of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi over the award. It was not addressed if he could twerk for the audience or not.

Accompanied by a video apologising further to Hegerberg, Solveig wrote on Twitter: "Sincere apologies to the one I may have offended".

Probably a bad one, and I want to apologize to the one I may have offended.
