US swimmer Ryan Lochte to have 'passport seized by Brazilian authorities over false claims he was robbed'

An order has been made to seize American swimmer Ryan Lochte's passport by Brazilian authorities after claims he 'lied about being robbed.'

Earlier police had further questions for the swimmer - a 12-time Olympic medallist - about the robbery and found 'little evidence' that it had taken place.

Lochte revealed on Sunday that he was robbed along with Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, Jimmy Feigen. All were left unharmed.

Lochte’s attorney, Jeff Ostrow, said there was no question the robbery happened and that the swimmer had 24-hour security hired after the incident.
