Former Miss Universe Margaret Gardiner showed off her impressive fit figure in a bikini-clad Instagram photo.

In the photo, Margaret, who celebrated her 61st birthday last month, puts her long legs on display wearing a green string bikini. 

Standing at 1.85m, taller than Gisele Bündchen, Elle Macpherson and Naomi Campbell, Margaret is known for her envy-worthy lean legs.

Now working as a journalist in Los Angeles, Margaret enjoyed a long career as an international model and lived in Paris when she was 16, working as a model.

"It's swimming season in South Africa too, I'm so happy," a follower from Pretoria commented on the photo. 

The former beauty queen often posts photos of herself enjoying the water, and in a previous post said that she incorporates swimming in her exercise routine. 

"3 hours of riding the waves playing with dolphins & watching the sun rise - and the world almost seemed normal Happiness flooded the senses and for 3 hours I forgot about #lockdown, [sic]" she captioned a recent photo resting on the beach sand.
