After Ravi Dahiya scripted one of the greatest comebacks on the mat, the pictures revealed the deep bite mark on his right bicep.

“It was painful when Ravi returned from the mat but he was given an ice-pack and he is fine. The pain has subsided. He is fit for the final, no problem at all,” a member of the Indian wrestling team’s support staff told PTI.

Ravi won by fall after trailing 2-9.

The bite by Sanayev reminded of the incident when Sushil Kumar was accused of biting the ear of his Kazakhstan opponent Akhzurek Tanatrov.

The videos had suggested that Sushil, who was trailing 0-3 in that London Olympics semifinal when he bit the ear of Tanatrov, who had showed the referee the blood on his ear but did not appeal against that.

Sushil went on to make the final, which he lost to settle for a silver medal.

According to the rules framed by world governing body UWW, the chapter Prohibition and Illegal Holds article 48 states that wrestlers are forbidden to pull the hair, ears, genitals, pinch the skin, bite, twist fingers or toes of their opponents.

The wrestlers are barred from performing actions, gestures or holds with the intention of torturing the opponent or making him suffer to force him to withdraw. And if found guilty, the wrestlers can be penalised.
