A Victoria's Secret model fell while walking the runway at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai on Monday.

Chinese model Ming Xi slipped while walking, falling to her knees.

She has been applauded on social media for appearing to do so gracefully and calmly, in what must feel quite a scrutinised situation.

That she kept a smile on her face and got back to her feet was a particular focus for praise:

Ming XI's professionalism in light of the fall, however, was reflected in her comments on it. She was disappointed but stoic.

In a statement on her Weibo, she wrote:

I’m sorry I disappointed everyone, thank you all for your concern, being a model for seven years, I’ve fallen countless times on the way... but I know regardless how painful it is, I have to stand up, finish walking.

I’ll continue walking on.
