She revealed: "I had Sepp Blatter grab my ass [turns towards her press assistant, Melinda Travis]".

Solo said the incident occurred just as she was about to give her teammate, Abby Wambach, a player of the year trophy at a Federation Internationale de Football Association awards ceremony in January 2013.

In an interview published Friday in the Portuguese newspaper Expresso, the former goalkeeper for the US women's national team recounted what happened at the Ballon d'Or awards in 2013 in Zurich.

Blatter assaulted her at the 2013 Ballon d'Or awards ceremony, Solo said. "[Sexual harassment] has been normalised". After that I didn't see him and that was kind of bad. It's not just in Hollywood, it's probably all over the place. Don't do it.' It has been in the showers, it's been in the locker room ... In the case of Sepp Blatter, I got on the stage, I was nervous, I presented the Ballon d'or. I always felt I'd "handled it" and stood up for myself in those situations, but there were never any consequences for the perpetrators. "For years, in the past, female players date and end up marrying their college coaches, which obviously a coach should not be doing, especially with a young player", she said.

Ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter has denied Hope Solo's accusations. She had to pull herself together quickly to give the award to Wambach. "From inappropriate comments, unwanted advances and grabs of the ass to coaches and [general managers] and even press officers speaking about players" "tits" and physical appearance, sexual harassment is rampant in the sports world.

Solo went on to add that sexual harassment was rife in all walks of life - claims she said she had witnessed with her own eyes - and stated that more needed to come forward with their stories to combat the "rampant" issue.

He has won five elections as president of Federation Internationale de Football Association from 1998 until 2015, was forced to step down and banned by Federation Internationale de Football Association amid a corruption scandal. Female players are pretty, if you excuse me for saying so, and they already have some different rules to men - such as playing with a lighter ball.

During Blatter's tenure, he was often accused of making sexist remarks, according to The Guardian. In 2013, he called a female candidate for Fifa's executive committee "good, and good looking".
