THE FIRST WOMAN TO BE AWARDED A WOMEN'S BALLON D'OR

Ada Hegerberg, who plays for Olympique Lyonnais in France became the first woman to be awarded a Ballon d’Or .

But the Monday evening was dampened by an inappropriate comment from presenter Martin Solveig was asked to twerk by the famous DJ just moments after being recognized for the inaugural award.









The Norwegian star shut down Solveig with a swift "no" before immediately exiting the stage.

Moments later, Solveig took to Twitter to apologize, adding that the situation was a misunderstanding.

"Sincere apologies to the one I may have offended. My point was: I don’t invite women to twerk but dance on a Sinatra song. Watch the full sequence. People who have followed me for 20 years know how respectful I am especially with women," Solveig wrote on Twitter.

He later followed up up by tweeting: "I explained to Ada Hegerberg the buzz and she told me she understood it was a joke. Nevertheless my apologies to anyone who may have been offended. Most importantly congratulations to Ada."
