“An­other ex­am­ple of the ridicu­lous sex­ism that still ex­ists in sport – why do women still have to put up with that? What ques­tions did they ask Mbappe and Mo­dric? 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.
