World’s best woman footballer is asked if she can ‘twerk’ and her response says it all

They’ve had an award for the world’s best male footballers for some time now and this year they thought they’d do something to level the playing field by having a Ballon d’Or for the world’s best woman footballer as well.

Except it didn’t go entirely to plan after the inaugural winner Ada Hegerberg was on stage collecting her award when the DJ, a Frenchman called Martin Solveig, asked if she ‘knew how to twerk’.

Her response was absolutely devastating (and brilliant).

Back of the net.

Here’s what Andy Murray made of it on Instagram.

“Another example of the ridiculous sexism that still exists in sport.

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

And here’s a few things other people were saying about it.

Footnote: the DJ later apologised, but if he isn’t asked to twerk every time he appears in public, something’s wrong.

Oh, and there’s also this.

And this.
