Supermodel Gigi Hadid was left seething after a man unexpectedly grabbed her from behind and tried to pick her up as she left a fashion show with her sister Bella.

The 21-year-old who is in Italy for the Milan fashion show fought back forcing the man to drop her and flee down the street. Security had to intervene to stop her going after him and whisked her and her sister to a waiting car. She later took to twitter to defend her actions.
