Ada Hegerberg was asked an uncomfortable question after winning Ballon d'Or title


Ada Hegerberg made history on Monday night by becoming the first recipient of the women's Ballon d'Or.

"I want to say thanks to my team-mates because this would not have been possible without them, my coach or our president Jean-Michel Aulas,"  the Lyon striker reflected at the ceremony. 

"I also want to thank France Football. This is a huge step for women's football."

The award crowned a fantastic 2018 for the 23-year-old, who scored in this year's Champions League final as Lyon routed Wolfsburg 4-1.

She defeated the likes of Pernille Harder, Dzsenifer Marozsan and England's Lucy Bronze who also made the inaugural list of nominations.

Ballon d'Or win for Hegerberg

The Norwegian was invited onto the stage and held the trophy aloft on an evening that also saw Luka Modric become the first player other than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to win since 2007.

However, sadly, the first awarding of the women's Ballon d'Or looks set to be remembered for an awkward moment during the victory speech.

With dancing rather randomly taking place during Kylian Mbappe's Kopa award announcement, Hegerberg was asked a rather uncomfortable question on stage.


Hegerberg asked to twerk

Host Martin Solveig - a French DJ - made the inexplicable decision to ask Hegerberg to twerk.

Her reaction said it all with the Norwegian quickly answering 'no' before walking off stage.

The Lyon player had every right to be annoyed, it was an inappropriate question and shouldn't have been asked during her crowning moment.

Unsurprisingly, football fans were seriously unimpressed - check out the reaction down below:
