The French dj and been co-presenter Martin Solveig asked after the presentation of the Golden Ball for the best female player on the Norwegian Ada Hegerberg, or they’re on stage wild ‘twerken’. The 23-year-old striker from Lyon responded succinctly with a measured ‘non’.
Solveig realized afterwards heavy in the wrong to have gone and apologized to Hegerberg, who said not to get angry. “I took it not as something sexist or offensive. Afterwards he is to me to come out here and we have each other the hand shake. I think we have a lot of other things can talk to sexism.”
The 42-year-old dj posted on Twitter, even public apologies. “My sincere apologies to anyone who I offended. My point is: I did not ask to twerken, but to dance on a song of Sinatra. My English is not so good. It was just a joke, a bad joke.”
On social media there was in the meantime already a major agitation is on the rise. Include top tennis player Andy Murray was amazed about the pronunciation. “I’ve spent my whole life in the sport involved and it is amazing how much sexism in it prevails”, he noted.
