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

The first ever female victor of the Ballon D'Or, Ada Hegerberg, forward for Lyon and Norway, was excited to receive the award.

'I didn't mean to offend anyone and I didn't know that this could be seen as such an offence, ' he added after the ceremony in Paris on Monday.

Solveig, a co-host, asked Hegerberg whether she knew how to twerk, to which she abruptly said "no", and appeared to attempt to leave the stage.

Solveig later offered his "sincere apologies" and Hegerberg said he also said sorry to her personally, but she dismissed suggestions that the incident had marred her evening. I was just happy to do the dance and win the Ballon d'Or. She said Solveig was "really sad that it went that way", the network reported.

Upon lifting the prestigious award, Ada, who plays for French side, Lyon, addressed the star-studded crowd, challenging young women to believe in themselves.

"To everyone who thinks people are overreacting and it was just a joke... it wasn't. It wasn't. I've been involved in sport my whole life and the level of sexism is unreal".

"It was nothing special", she said. "It's historic, it's incredible, a great day for women's football and a big step forward".

Hegerberg, a Norwegian striker for Lyon's Olympique Lyonnais football team, beat the likes of England's Lucy Bronze to win the prize, but was left embarrassed while collecting the award from Martin Solveig, a French DJ, and the former French global footballer David Ginola.

"I think there are a lot of other subjects to discuss if we're talking about sexual matters".
