England’s Euro 2022 hero Beth Mead has laughed at being called friend Vivianne Miedema’s “guest” in a photo at Monday night’s Ballon d’Or awards.

The photo of Mead and Miedema was taken just before the England forward, who helped her country to the women’s European Championships in the summer, finished second to Barcelona’s Alexia Putellas in the women’s Ballon d’Or ranking.

In response to a tweet referring to the photo, Mead, 27, wrote “LOL,” followed by a thumbs-up emoji and a crying smiling face emoji.

The Arsenal forward came second in the voting behind Putellas and ahead of Chelsea’s Sam Kerr.

Mead was named Player of the Tournament at the European Women’s Championship and also won the golden boot with six goals and five assists, the most of any player.

She also enjoyed a good season at Arsenal, scoring 11 goals and providing eight assists in the Women’s Super League.

But it wasn’t enough to beat Putellas, despite missing the European Championship due to injury. The Barca star was the top goalscorer in the Spanish league with 18 goals in 26 matches and also topped the charts in the Champions League with 10 goals in 11 matches.

Mead is the first England player to make the top three since Lucy Bronze finished second in 2019.

She had traveled to the awards ceremony in the same private jet as her Arsenal teammate and partner Miedema, who was also nominated, and Bukayo Saka.

Mead opened up about her sexuality last month after previously revealing she was dating Miedema, 26.

The Arsenal star said she struggled with her sexuality for a long time but was now confident in being open about the subject.

She even joked in an August interview with the Times that she and Miedema were the new Posh and Becks “of the lesbian world,” referring to English legend David Beckham and his wife Victoria.

“Actually, I never got out physically and said I’m gay, I’m with a girl because I didn’t have to. I’m just myself. I have posted pictures with my partner on social media. For me, I’ve tried to make it normal instead of making a statement,” Mead told Sky Sports.

“Obviously for the men now, they have to put it in the media and then see what reaction they get and I understand that the culture in the men’s game is still very different and it’s much, much harder. But for me, I want to bridge that gap and help both the men and the women.

‘It’s a tough process. It’s emotionally and physically exhausting, and I understand all aspects for people, but for me you can’t help who you fall in love with and if you’re happy in the end.’
