Japanese media reported that Harumafuji hit his fellow Mongolian wrestler Takanoiwa in the head with a beer bottle at a party last month, fracturing his skull base and causing other injuries. Harumafuji reportedly was upset with Takanoiwa's "attitiude".

"Regarding Takanoiwa's injury, I sincerely apologize for causing trouble to his stablemaster, his stable, the Japan Sumo Association and my stablemaster", Harumafuji said.

The Japan Sumo Association announced Monday that eighth-ranked maegashira Takanoiwa has been diagnosed with concussion and skull base fracture among other injuries, and revealed that he been hospitalized from November 5 to 9.

The assault by Harumafuji, who as a yokozuna is expected to display exemplary behaviour at all times, has dominated TV talkshows and received widespread media coverage.

"I sincerely apologise for causing trouble", Harumafuji said in Fukuoka, a southern Japanese city where the Kyushu Grand Sumo tournament is now being held. There has been no confirmation that the head injury and allegation are linked, but officials are investigating.

"Harumafuji will be absent from the third day" of an ongoing tournament in Fukuoka, the association said on Twitter, without giving a reason.

Japan's ancient sport of sumo is again fighting to salvage its reputation after a top-ranking wrestler seriously injured a fellow competitor in an alcohol-fuelled attack.

The incident occurred during the autumn regional tour in Tottori, and police said Wednesday they launched a probe into the case after receiving a damage report from the victim, who was hospitalized for five days.

In June 2007, a stable master and his three wrestlers were convicted over a bullying-death of a 17-year-old junior wrestler.

In 2010, the Mongolian wrestler Asashoryu retired, weeks after he allegedly broke a man's nose in an assault outside a Tokyo nightclub.
