Russian ballerina endures naked ice baths

A Russian ballerina has an ice bath every day after being sacked for being "too fat".

Anastasia Volochkova's daily routine now includes waking up and heading into her garden naked and sitting in a tub full of ice cold water, something she has done ever since lost her job for piling on the pounds.

In a video clip posted on her Instagram account, she says: "Good, sunny and frosty morning to you. I usually start a day with an ice cold bath.

"I can strongly recommend it, if you can handle it, of course. This brings real health, power and energy."
