After awarding former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan $115 million last week in a case involving the online posting of a sex tape, a Florida jury on Monday upped the award by more than $25 million for punitive damages, WTSP reported.

The award represents additional damages that the jury decided Hogan should receive from Gawker Media, its owner and Gawker's former editor-in-chief, who posted the video and story in 2012.
