Ryan Lochte: Swimmer banned for 10 months over false robbery

American swimmer Ryan Lochte has been banned from the sport for 10 months after falsely claiming he was robbed at gunpoint during the Rio Olympic Games.

The 32-year-old said he and three team-mates were held up at a petrol station during a night out.

But police questioned the account after CCTV footage showed the group had vandalised the petrol station.

USA Swimming and the US Olympic Committee (USOC) have also banned the three other swimmers involved.
