Monday was a historic day for women's football as Ada Hegerberg became the first woman to be awarded a Ballon d'Or , but the evening was dampened by an inappropriate comment from presenter Martin Solveig.
The Norwegian seemed briefly non-plussed before joining in a more conventional waltz on stage as the audience looked on in embarrssment.
She scored a tournament-record 15 goals for Lyon in the Women's Champions League last season. People who have followed me for 20 years know how respectful I am especially with women.
"Disgusting and really ruined her moment she deserved".
Nope, us neither - nearly ruined Hegerberg's night with an inexplicably sexist remark shortly after the forward collected her award.

Michelle Obama advice for Meghan Markle
I love my husband, and we have a great marriage, and we've had a great marriage, but marriage is hard work. In this episode of The Windsors, we examine Meghan's life before she became the Duchess of Sussex .
Hegerberg appears visibly disgusted by the remark, gives a firm no and turns away from the camera as Solveig laughs.
Hegerberg was named the UEFA Women's Player of the Year in 2016 and has won the French league, Coupe de France and Champions League three times apiece as a member of powerhouse Lyon.
Lyon's Ada Hegerberg was announced as the best women's player in the world for 2018 at a glittering ceremony in Pairs, with Luka Modric winning the male equivalent. However, she also expressed frustration about living "in such a man's world" and said the award will not make her reconsider her refusal to play for Norway because of her unhappiness over perceived inequality.
Pernille Harder (Denmark/Wolfsburg), Dzsenifer Maroszan (Germany/Lyon), Marta (Brazil/Orlando Pride) and Sam Kerr (Australia/Chicago Red Stars) filled out the top five. They have existed since 1956 but had not previously had a women's football category.
Modric is the first man to win the award since 2007 that is not called Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.
