Collation error importing WordPress sql

I am trying to move a local WordPress site to a GoDaddy MySQL server.

Local Server version: 5.7.19 - MySQL Community Server (GPL)

GoDaddy version: 5.5

When I try to import the SQL I am getting this error on GoDaddy's PhpMyAdmin:

Can anyone help me out?

Thank you!

You'll need to change the Collation to an mb4 compatible one:

CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_general_ci;

Or change the Character set to a non-mb4 one:

CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_general_ci;
