Lochte sorry over 'stupid mistake'
A tearful Ryan Lochte has said sorry to his US swim team-mates, his family and the people of Brazil for a "stupid mistake" at a gas station that overshadowed the Games' final week.
The six-time gold medallist also explained - in a lengthy interview with NBC's Matt Lauer - why he made up the robbery story.
"I was intoxicated," he said. "I was immature, and I made a stupid mistake. I'm human, and I'm just really sorry."
