The Norwegian striker is the first player to win the women's Ballon d'Or award, recognising her as the best player in the world.

French DJ Martin Solveig has apologised after being accused of sexism when he asked Norwegian striker Ada Hegerberg if she could twerk just moments after she won the inaugural women's Ballon d'Or award.
The 23-year-old - who scored 15 goals for Lyon during a triumphant Champions League campaign last season - was encouraged to perform the provocative dance move as she gave her acceptance speech.
She replied "no" and turned away from the podium as Solveig laughed off her answer, as other footballers in the audience looked on in bemusement.
The bizarre incident has sparked outrage among fans online, with Solveig - who has apologised for causing offence - coming under heavy criticism for his "sexist", "disrespectful" and "disgusting" request.

One viewer, Sean Walker, tweeted: "Lyon striker Ada Hegerberg, first female Ballon D'Or winner after scoring over 250 career goals at the age 23, asked to twerk on stage in front of footballing giants and the public watching.
"Disgusting and really ruined her moment she deserved. Poor."
Football journalist Siavoush Fallahi added: "What kind of question is this? And why are these guys laughing? This is disgusting, I'm so sorry for Ada Hegerberg."

Responding to the criticism, Solveig tweeted: "Sincere apologies to the one I may have offended.
"My point was: I don't invite women to twerk but dance on a Sinatra song. Watch the full sequence. People who have followed me for 20 years know how respectful I am especially with women.
"I explained to @AdaStolsmo the buzz and she told me she understood it was a joke. Nevertheless my apologies to anyone who may have been offended. Most importantly congratulations to Ada."

Hegerburg claimed the award - voted for by journalists - after seeing off Wolfsburg and Denmark forward Pernille Harder, German midfielder Dzsenifer Marozsan, and England and Lyon defender Lucy Bronze.
It recognises her as the best female footballer in the world.
In her acceptance speech at the ceremony in Paris, she said: "I want to say thanks to my teammates because this would not have been possible without them, my coach or our president Jean-Michel Aulas.
"I also want to thank France Football. This is a huge step for women's football.
"And to young girls all over the world, please, believe in yourself."
France Football has handed out a men's Ballon d'Or every year since 1956 and the 2018 edition marked the first time in a decade that it had been won by someone other than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.
Luka Modric won the award after helping Real Madrid to another Champions League trophy, before inspiring Croatia to an unlikely appearance in the World Cup final.
