It's amazing because there is a way to embellish a legitimate penalty without making it diving. That's not the way to do it. He was legitimately high sticked in the face, and it probably made him have quick reaction to fall. The fall was enough even though it probably didn't hurt him. The theatrics is ridiculous though, and should be penalized.

When I play the game I don't embellish things. Rather, I make it very easy to penalize me. Going into the wall for example, if I show you my back I'm not going to put any weight down on my legs. A small shove will send me to the floor. But I didn't force it, I just let physics do its job!
