Andy Murray, who has always stood up for women, over the years, berated the Ballon d'Or award ceremony, for the ungentlemanly-like question that was posed by Martin Solveig after, the French DJ's comment took the shine off Ada Hegerberg's Ballon d'Or success. "This was a joke, probably a bad one, and I want to apologize for the one I may have offended".
Hegerberg has scored over 250 career goals at the age of 23, and for reasons unknown, Solveig believed it to be the ideal time to ask a professional female if she could twerk onstage.
He later followed up up by tweeting: "I explained to Ada Hegerberg the buzz and she told me she understood it was a joke. Being a women's footballer and winning the Ballon d'Or tonight is a step for me to take that action, personally". I don't think the respect has been there.
She helped her team, Lyon, snare a Champions League title for a record fifth time, scoring 15 goals, according to AFP.
The Norway global has tallied 10 goals in 10 league games this season with Lyon sitting atop the table.
"Why do woman [sic] still have to put up with that s***?"
Former Football Fern Maia Jackman told 1 NEWS yesterday she was gutted a historic moment in women's football history had been reduced to a sexist remark.

What was supposed to be an uplifting moment, though, was marred by Martin Solveig.
France Football magazine has been awarding the Ballon d'Or - until now only to men - since 1956, when Matthews was the first victor. "Most importantly congratulations to Ada", he wrote.
Speaking to the BBC, the footballer said, "He came to me afterwards and was really sad that it went that way". What questions did they ask [Kylian] Mbappe and [men's victor Luka] Modric?
He concluded his message by referring to a "level of sexism unreal".
On receiving the award, Hegerberg said: "I would like to say a huge thanks to France Football, for letting us have this opportunity to have this award". At the age of 23, Hagerberg became the first woman to strike 300 goals and won the inaugural award, considered the highest honour in the world of football.
"I think there are a lot of other subjects to discuss if we're talking about sexual matters".
"He came to after the presentation and apologized", she said. "That is where I set the bar".
