Ryan Lochte: US swimmer given 14-month ban for doping violation

Twelve-time Olympic medallist Ryan Lochte has been given a 14-month ban for a doping violation.

The 33-year-old American has been sanctioned by the US Anti-Doping Agency for an intravenous infusion.

While Lochte was not using a banned substance, athletes cannot usually receive IVs unless related to a hospitalisation or via an exemption.

Lochte posted a photo of himself on social media receiving the IV which prompted an investigation.
