Luka Modric and Ada Hegerberg win Ballon d’Or

Luka Modric, the 33 year old captain of Croatia’s national football team and a star player for the club Real Madrid won the coveted Ballon d’Or also called as the Golden Ball. The award is presented for the best football player of the year. In a football world dominated by icons like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, this young gentleman has proven himself and to the world that best can come from anywhere. Luka’s childhood story is a nightmare. He was brought up during the time when Serbs attacked Croatia. He witnessed his own grandfather being shot by the Serbs and lived a life that was so traumatic.

Now he has won the prestigious Ballon d’Or and also remain as  a 4 time Champions League Winner. While this was the case of Luka, the inaugural Women’s Balloon d’Or winner Ada Hegerberg of Norway was embarrassed by the host Martin Solvig. He asked her whether she can ‘twerk’. The star said no and left the stage and both the parties reconciled. Not all comments will be taken as a joke, which the host has forgotten to keep in mind. Ada said she understood it was a joke and said she was not offended.
