New footage proves Ryan Lochte and other swimmers lying about being robbed.

(TAP) - Ryan Lochte, a decorated American Olympian, says he and three of his teammates, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen, were robbed at gunpoint.

However sources from Brazil are now claiming there's video footage from the gas station that shows the swimmers "fighting" with security guards--not being robbed. Authorities say they broke down a bathroom door at the gas station and picked a fight with guards.

Brazilian police officials said Lochte, Bentz, Conger and Feigen had a gun pointed at them by a security officer after they vandalised a gas station bathroom, but were not victims of a robbery or other violence.

The US Olympic Committee CEO apologised for the incident after the video emerged, showing apparent lewd behaviour by the swimmers at the gas station.
