Yokozuna Kisenosato, who came from behind to win the Spring Grand Sumo Tournament on Sunday despite injury, was diagnosed with muscle damage in his left upper arm and needs one month of treatment, a Japan Sumo Association source said Wednesday.

Kisenosato, who also won the previous tourney in January and became the first Japan-born wrestler to be promoted to sumo’s highest rank in 19 years, will miss the spring regional sumo tour scheduled to begin this coming Sunday.
