US Olympic Committee suspends swimmer Ryan Lochte for 10 months following 'fake robbery' scandal

According to multiple news outlets in the U.S, Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte has been suspended for 10 months following his involvement about a fake robbery story at the just concluded Rio Olympics.

Lochte, 32, was dropped by four major company sponsors after he admitted he "overexaggerated" his story about being robbed and held at gunpoint in Brazil...

The Olympic gold medallist claimed he and three teammates - Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger - were robbed after stopping at a petrol station after a party but the Brazilian police denied the story and said he was lying only for him to come back later and say he 'over exaggerated' his claims.

According to USA Today, the three other swimmers have been suspended, although for shorter lengths of time, and Lochte would be banned from a championship swim meet in Budapest in 2017.
