The 23-year-old Norwegian Ada Hegerberg won Monday night the first the Golden Ball for women. But her gloriemoment was marred by the French dj Martin Solveig.
For the first time in history was there Monday a Gold Ball for women granted. After the Norwegian aanvalster in Lyon the prize had been taken, asked the French dj Martin Solveig or they could twerken. That is a sexually provocative dance.
“You have seen that I have a small celebration for Kylian (Mbappe, red) had prepared, so we are going to something similar. You can twerken?’
Just had Solveig with the French footballer Kylian Mbappe a dance on the stage done. Hegerberg looked thoughtful, and replied with a short ‘no’.
Social media was Solveig of sexism accused. “Another example of the ridiculous sexism in the sport, was tennis player Andy Murray to know. “Who thinks people are overreacting and that it was just a joke it was, that it was not. The sexism in the sport is unreal.’
Quickly offered Solveig his apologies via a video on Twitter. “I’m a bit surprised with what I on the internet read, and I wish, of course, no one insulting,” he says. “This was a joke, probably a bad one, I want to apologize if I offended anyone.”
He says that people all images need to view. So he danced with the winner of Frank Sinatra. “My point was: I need women not to twerken, or to dance on a song of Sinatra, so he defends himself.
Hegerberg itself relativizes the note. ‘Solveig afterwards of to me and lamented how it has expired. At the time I thought there to be honest, not after. I considered it not really as sexual harassment or so.
That they are the prize, calls them fantastic. “It is a fantastic day for women’s football. I hope young girls are inspired by this.”
