Team Ireland Olympian Jack Woolley has been treated in hospital after an alleged assault in Dublin overnight.
Jack, who competed in Taekwondo at the Tokyo Games last month, shared photos of himself with large cuts to his face while lying in a hospital bed.
He says he was crossing the street when he was "just punched in the mouth".
He also shared photos showing 'before' and 'after' photos, which he says were taken just minutes apart (warning: the second image contains graphic content).
The 22-year-old says he's still in hospital this afternoon.
In an Instagram post, Jack said he and several others were the victims of "random attacks" along the boardwalk area of Dublin city centre.
He said: "Luckily I was able to phone an ambulance and stay conscious. My friends helped me throughout all [of] this and I’m glad to say they both are well and safe.
"I’m currently waiting in James’s hospital for mouth surgery.
"Thank you all again for the support and kind messages. I hope for a speedy recovery. It’s been a tough couple of months."
In a statement this afternoon, gardaí said they're investigating an alleged assault that happened on Grattan Bridge in Dublin at around 12:40am this morning.
They say a man in his 20s was taken to St James's Hospital for treatment for injuries sustained during the incident.
Nobody has been arrested in connection with the incident.
