Describing how Daisy started modelling, he said: "It just so happened on the TV pops up a disabled modelling agency so I put the idea to her."

Daisy began her modelling career at eight years old, appearing for River Island.

Her older sister Ella, 11, joined her on the runway at New York Fashion Week.

Ms Hegedus-Buiron, who appointed Daisy as a brand ambassador for her Lulu et Gigi line, said she wanted people to see that "beauty is not one-sided".

"(Daisy) is not different to anyone else," she added.

Later this month, Daisy will model at the top of the Eiffel Tower for Paris Fashion Week.

NEW YORK — Matteo Berrettini describes his mental coach as a big help and a best friend. They've been speaking on the phone before and after every match during Berrettini's run to his first Grand Slam semifinal. They'll have a lot to chat about when it comes to this latest victory. Berrettini, a 23-year-old from Rome, gave Italy a spot in the final four at the U.S. Open for the first time since 1977 in dramatic fashion, double-faulting away his initial match point and then needing four more to finally put away 13th-seeded Gael Monfils of France 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (5) after nearly four hours in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Wednesday.
