Hegerberg's stone-faced response of "Non" to the request said it all. Naturally, those on social media were not here for the incredibly belittling comment.
Meanwhile, Norwegian striker Ada Hegerberg was rewarded for her prolific form with Champions League winners Lyon as she took the first ever women's Ballon d'Or prize. "One step forward, two steps back".
The Scot has been a constant champion of equality for women in sport, and has repeatedly called out sexism, such as what he witnessed when he hired Amelie Mauresmo as his coach, and in 2017 he famously corrected a reporter for saying Sam Querrey was "the first U.S. player to reach a major semi-final since 2009", ignoring the obvious achievements of Serena Williams who had won 12 grand slams since 2009. Hederberg returned, laughed and briefly danced with the DJ, before Solveig congratulated her on her award and invited applause from the crowd. Would you ask the same of a man?
Today, Solveig has posted an apology for the twerk incident.
Accompanied by a video apologising further to Hegerberg, Solveig wrote on Twitter: "Sincere apologies to the one I may have offended".
After Hederberg's initial reaction, Solveig then offered a different kind of dance, and Frank Sinatra's Fly Me To The Moon began to play.

Most of that growth can be traced to an exceptionally hot summer and cold winter. China, India and the European Union are setting the pace.
"Watch the full sequence people who have followed me for 20 years know how respectful I am especially with women".
"I want to say thanks to France Football", Hegerberg said, per ESPNW.
"Nevertheless my apologies to anyone who may have been offended". Hegerberg, speaking of the matter directly after the ceremony, said she did not take it as "sexual harassment" and emphasized there were more important issues to focus on. Alongside male victor Luka Modric of Croatia, who plays his club ball for Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid, the inaugural women's award went to Norwegian striker Ada Hegerberg of the French club Olympique Lyonnais.
Modric, 33, was announced as the victor of the prestigious prize in Paris ahead of Ronaldo and French World Cup victor Antoine Griezmann. It's a big pleasure to be here among all these players. I got to dance a bit and I got the Ballon D'Or, and that's all that was in my mind. "I didn't really think about it at the time, to be honest".
"In my career I've realised that hard work and persistence in difficult moments sets the foundation to show your talent".
