Martin Solveig apologises over 'twerk' question to Ada Hegerberg
The French DJ asked an ill-timed question about twerking after Ada Hegerberg had won the first ever Women's Ballon d'Or award in Paris on Monday.
Ada Hegerberg won the first ever Women's Ballon d'Or award at the ceremony in Paris on Monday night but had to respond to French DJ, Martin Solveig's, insulting question after collecting the historic prize.
Martin Solveig really asked Ada Hegerberg, the first ever Ballon D'Or winner, to twerk. The absolute disrespect bruh. pic.twitter.com/Mtc5DBjS7a— A West (@ayyy_west) December 3, 2018
Having accepted the award, Solveig asked the Norweigan Champions League winner with Lyon if she "knew how to twerk" to which the footballer responded that she didn't but the awkwardness was palpable.
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.

The DJ has since taken to Twitter and apologised for the question and he says he didn't mean to offend anyone while also blaming his poor English despite asking the question in French.
