Sergio Ramos presents Shakira with award at Latin Grammys for her Gerard Pique 'diss track'

Sergio Ramos presented Colombian singer Shakira with the 'Best Song of the Year' award at last night's Latin Grammys, which happens to be her diss track about former partner Gerard Pique.

Back in June last year, Shakira and Pique announced their split after an 11-year relationship.

A joint statement read: "We regret to confirm that we are separating. For the well-being of our children, who are our top priority, we ask for respect for our privacy. Thank you for your understanding.”

Shakira would later open up about her separation from Pique, referring to the grieving period as "the darkest hours of my life."

She added: "I've remained quiet and just tried to process it all. It's hard to talk about it, especially because I'm still going through it, and because I'm in the public eye."

The 46-year-old would also release a song in January this year that featured a series of digs at the former Barcelona defender.

Several months later and Shakira picked up the song of the year and pop song of the year for Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53.

Her collab on TQG with Karol G also won the best urban and fusion performance at this week's Latin Grammys, but it was special guest Sergio Ramos that got people talking online.

The former Real Madrid defender, an unexpected guest at the ceremony in Seville, even handed over the award to his former Spain teammate's ex-partner.

After dedicating the award to her children, Shakira spoke on the "tough moments" over the past year or so.

"I also want to share this with my Spanish audience, who has been there with me through the good and bad times," she said.

"In those hard and tough moments I've experienced here in this country, I have loved so much but at no moment has stopped giving me love and support."

Speaking to Billboard in September, the pop singer was asked about the controversy surrounding Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53, and whether it was right to speak out so publicly about her relationship with Pique.

"When I did that session, people on my team were saying, 'Please change this. Don't even think about coming out with those lyrics.' And I said, 'Why not?'

"I'm not a diplomat in the United Nations. I'm an artist, and I have the right to work on my emotions through my music.

'It's my catharsis and my therapy, but it's also the therapy of many people. I know I'm the voice of many people, and I'm not being pretentious, just realistic. I lend my voice to many women who maybe also wanted to say the same things I said and perhaps haven't had the validation to do so."

She added: "I think songs like the Bizarrap session or like the one I did with Karol have given many women strength, self-empowerment, self-confidence and also the backing to express and say what they need to say."
