The Georgian posted a selfie of her recovery process on her Instagram Stories on Thursday, alongside the caption that she “feels like Frankenstein”.

Jojua, 25, will also serve a six-month medical suspension, although that could be reduced to two months with 45 days of no-contact training if she’s cleared by an ear, nose and throat doctor.
