Yokozuna Harumafuji sent Kisenosato tumbling down the ring to his first defeat as yokozuna — and left him with an injury — on Friday, the 13th day of the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament, where ozeki Terunofuji now shares the lead also with one defeat.

Harumafuji (10-3) left Kisenosato reeling with a strong low charge and the Mongolian didn’t let his opponent maneuver his way out, crushing the debutant yokozuna out and off the ring in the day’s last bout.
