Andy Murray has always being a “feminist” by his own words.

The Brit sensation is used to be vocal against inequality, and he made his own “statement’ after he hired Amelie Mauresmo as his coach.

What happened

On Monday, Ada Hegerberg was the first female ever to receive the version of the Ballon d’Or.

During the ceremony, the award’s presenter DJ Martin Solveig asked Ada to “twerk” and she (rightly so) replied “no.”

Things got rather awkward, and DJ Martin Solveig apologized soon after.

 

Why Murray was so upset

Andy Murray released the following comment on the social media

What questions did they ask Mbappe and Midrib?

“I’d imagine something to do with football.And to everyone who thinks people are overreacting and it was just a joke… It wasn’t.

I’ve been involved in sport my whole life, and the level of sexism is unreal.

It wasn’t sexual harassment. Hegerberg

Ada played down the situation to comment

“He came to me afterward and was really sad that it went that way. I didn’t really think about it at the time, to be honest.

I didn’t really consider it a sexual harassment or anything in the moment.

Being historical and the first woman to win the Ballon d’Or is a huge moment in my life. It felt right to have my teammates with me. It is a fantastic team with great characters. I have been in Lyon for four and a half years, and it is a special mentality. We live and breathe football, and I cherish it.

It is a fantastic day for women’s football. It is historical, and it is important to show young girls that they can believe in themselves and I hope they are inspired by this. They are the future.”
