French DJ Martin Solveig on Monday night, December 4 sparked social media outrage after asking Norway international Ada Hegerberg to dance on stage moments after being crowned winner of the female Ballon d'Or award.

Solveig invited Ada on stage in Paris to receive her Golden Ball, before asking her to twerk.

Upon lifting the prestigious award, Ada, who plays for French side, Lyon, addressed the star-studded crowd, challenging young women to believe in themselves.

"I want to ask every young woman to believe in themselves," she said.
