Irish Olympian Jack Woolley has confirmed that he has been discharged from hopsital following a brutal assault which occurred in Dublin City centre on Friday night.
The taekwondo fighter who represented Ireland at the Tokyo Olympics shared a post on Instagram following the assault.
Woolley said on Sunday that he was recovering at home and wanted to raise awareness about what happened to him.
“I’m home and all now. I’m just gonna get some food into me and rest up, watch a bit of Love Island that I need to catch up on and we’ll be all sorted,” Woolley said.
“The swelling after surgery is a little bit worse than it was before,” he continued.
“Don’t worry about me, I will be alright. I just wanted to raise some awareness about what happened, I am not looking for people’s sympathy. That is not why I posted or anything.”
The Irish fighter thanked everyone for their messages to him after the assault.
