Former Sky Sports News presenter Ian Payne showed off his scars after a horrific attack.
Payne was glassed by an unknown assailant and took to Twitter on Saturday night to show off the stitches in his face.
The 56-year-old now works for ITV Sports and reassured his followers on social media he was recovering after the incident.
Revealing his stitched up face via a selfie, Payne grimaced in pain as he showed off his bloated face.
Payne wrote: “Thank-you Met Police and NHS West Middlesex Hospital for your amazing skills.
“Not thank u to the glasser [sic] who thought this was ok.”
