The Ballon d’or for Ada Hegerberg and reviews for Martin Solveig

Ada Hegerberg was not impressed

French DJ and Ballon d'Or host Martin Solveig has apologized to the inaugural women's victor Ada Hegerberg after a row erupted over a question he posed to her during the award ceremony.

Ada Hegerberg later said that she took that comment as a joke than a sexual harassment, although Martin Solveig apologized to her after the event. "This was a joke, probably a bad one, and I want to apologise for the one I may have offended, sorry about that".

But fans had plenty more to say about DJ Solveig as a clip of the query about the bum-shaking dance racked up millions of views on Twitter.

"I explained to @AdaStolsmo the buzz and she told me she understood it was a joke".

"Being historical and the first woman to win the Ballon d'Or is a huge moment in my life", she added. I don't think the respect has been there.

Hegerberg, who helped lead Lyon win the Women's Champions League last season, said she hoped it would motivate young female players.

Ada Hegerberg has 250 goals to her name and holds a 15 goal record in the 2017/18 UEFA Women's Champions League.

The biggest point of debate in the dressing room would be whether to go with six pure batsmen or to play five bowlers. Going forward we've got full faith in him being a Test all-rounder".

Ada Hederberg was asked to twerk during her Ballon d'Or acceptance ceremony.

"Why do woman still have to put up with that (expletive)?" tennis player Andy Murray wrote on Instagram.

Solveig has since tendered his apology via Twitter saying: "Sincere apologies to the one I may have offended".

Speaking to the BBC, the footballer said, "He came to me afterwards and was really sad that it went that way".

"Disgusting what happened with Hegerberg at the Ballon d'Or and it's vital the vile attitude and mindset is stamped out across the globe", Welsh FA media executive Owain Harries wrote. "I share this with Olympique Lyonnais, my teammates, the staff", she beamed after joining men's victor Luka Modric and men's best young player Kylian Mbappe on the stage with her trophy.

Hegerberg, who plays for Olympique Lyonnais in France, was asked to twerk by the famous DJ just moments after being recognized for the inaugural award. "It's historic, it's incredible, a great day for women's football and a big step forward".

Of the other Lyon contenders, German midfielder Dzsenifer Marozsan came closest to her, finishing third in the voting.
