Ryan Lochte, the US Olympic medalist, has managed to piss off a lot of people this week (including the entire population of Brazil) with his false claims of being held up and robbed at gun point.
An article in The Washington Post was particularly stinging, referring to Lochte as a swimmer "lost in the riptide of self-absorption" and the "dumbest bell that ever rang." Another article in the New York Post described Lochte as "everything the world hates about American".
And all of this seems to have come about because he lied to his mum. Now, there's a lesson for us all...don't lie to your parents!
