The artistic director of Russia's Bolshoi ballet Sergei Filin is almost blind following an acid attack, despite 18 operations to save his sight.

At a news conference on June 20, Bolshoi spokeswoman Katerina Novikova said Filin could barely see out of either eye.

It has been alleged that the assault was masterminded by a rival dancer.

Filin has vowed to return to the Bolshoi.
