She took to Instagram on Saturday to share a throwback photo from earlier in the summer, in which she could be seen wearing an animal print bikini top and black bottoms with a straw hat.

However, the lower half of her body was completely separated from her upper half in the photo, with her legs appearing to be moving away underwater.

She captioned her post: “Should have paid more attention to GCSE physics, should have googled it.. #refraction.”

Refraction is when light travels from air into water, causing it to slow down and change direction slightly, creating the optical illusion seen in Samia’s image.

In another photo, Samia looked relaxed as she held her arms in the air as she walked across a glass-bottomed section of the crystal clear pool she was immersed in while on a recent vacation.
