Team Ireland Olympian Jack Wooley is being treated in hospital following an alleged assault in Dublin last night.
Jack, who competed in Taekwondo in Tokyo, has posted photos on social media of himself covered in blood and with large cuts to his face.
He says he was crossing the street when he was 'punched in the mouth.'
Gardai say they attended the scene of an assault at Grattan Bridge at around 12.40am, and a man in his 20s was taken to St James's Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Speaking in an online video posted this afternoon, the 22-year-old Olympian says he has been waiting since last night to get surgery.
