US swimmer Ryan Lochte to have passport seized by Brazilian authorities probing 'discrepancies' in robbery claims?

An order has been made to seize American swimmer Ryan Lochte's passport by Brazilian judge after claims he 'lied about being robbed' at the Rio 2016 Olympics - but his lawyer says he is already back in the US.

Earlier today police said they had further questions for the athlete - 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.

But police say the swimmers were unable to provide key details in police interviews - and claim they have found contradictions in the swimmers' stories.

They want to speak with both Lochte and Feigen as a matter of urgency. Full story...
