These professional divers have gone viral for all the wrong reasons

Had a bad week?

It can't have been as bad as John Elmerson Fabriga, 21, and John David Pahoyo, 17, two Filipino professional divers who scored perfect zeros at the Southeast Asian Games in Singapore on Wednesday.

A video of their (literal) flop went viral on Facebook - but Pahoyo managed to see the funny side, commenting on Facebook: “I even laughed at myself after I did this dive."

He added: "I am still proud because not all of us has the privilege to represent our own country to such a big sporting event like this. And by the way can I ask all of you if you can still smile after getting embarrassed in front of thousands of people?"

A winning attitude, even if he isn't an actual winner.
