This might possibly be her greatest individual moment in the professional career which was ruined by  DJ Martin Solveig when he asked Hegerberg to twerk on stage. She politely declined and tried to remove herself from the stage.

After the incident as social media backfired him for his inappropriate remark, Solveig apologised for explaining that was only for fun but, was highly sexist.

But, The movement was ruined.


Along with Ada Hegerberg, Luka Modric won his 1st Ballon d’Or ending a decade long claim of Messi and Ronaldo.
