More from Sean Swaby at Bleacher Report, quoting Wes Morgan on Blatter not recognising her at the 2012 FIFA World Player of the Year event:
I have experienced sexism multiple times, and I’m sure I will a lot more.
I feel like I’m fighting for female athletes. At the FIFA World Player of the Year event (in 2012), FIFA executives and FIFA president Sepp Blatter didn’t know who I was.
And I was being honoured as a top three in the world. That was pretty shocking.
