DJ Martin Solveig has apologized for the sexist comments he made at the 2018 Ballon d’or awards on Monday. The French DJ asked the 2018 female Ballon d’or winner, Ada Hegerberg, to twerk after the Olympique Lyon striker claimed her Award on stage. Solveig claimed he was just making an attempt at humour which apparently backfired.



“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” Martin posted on twitter



The 23-year-old Norwegian, Ada, enjoyed a fine season with Olympique Lyon, scoring 42 goals in 25 appearances for the French side. The men’s award was won by Luka modric. Modric led his country to the final of the 2018 World Cup and also won the Champions League with Madrid. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe won the inaugural U21 Ballon d’or Kopa Trophy.
