Charges dropped over Lochte's robbery claims

Ryan Lochte

A court in Brazil has dismissed charges against US swimmer Ryan Lochte relating to false robbery claims he made at the Rio Olympics.

Lochte, 32, had told a TV interview that he and three other members of the US swimming team had been robbed at gunpoint at a petrol station.

Brazilian police later determined, partly based on CCTV footage, that Lochte had largely made up the story.
