Madonna is convinced she escaped her BRIT Awards fall without injury because she is in such "good shape".

The pop superstar hit headlines last month (Feb15) when she took a spectacular tumble during her performance at the prizegiving in London, plunging down a set of stairs after a dancer accidentally yanked her backwards by her cloak.

Madonna managed to escape without hurting herself and carried on her performance without stopping, and she credits her gruelling exercise regime for keeping her body strong enough to withstand the impact of the fall.

She tells the Associated Press, "I attribute a lot of the fact that I came out all right because I'm in good shape (sic)... I still do a lot of dance cardio. I started doing yoga again. I do interval training, metabolic interval training... Jumping ropes."

The Holiday hitmaker adds in an interview with the New York Times, "If I wasn't in good shape, I wouldn't have survived that fall. But I'm strong. I know how to fall - I ride horses. And I have core strength, and I know that saved me. That and my guardian angels... So I think both were at work in the protection of me."

She adds of the shocking onstage moment, "I didn't feel (pain) when it happened. I just remember falling backward, and I hit the back of my head. But I had so much adrenaline pumping, and I was so taken by surprise that I just was, Ok, I have to keep going. So I just got back onstage and I just kept going."
