Oh, Ryan Lochte

The American swimmer opened up to NBC's Matt Lauer last night in an exclusive interview, and it sure seemed like the Olympic star was sad… but not completely apologetic?!

Called out on his lies, Lochte backtracked, but never full on groveled — despite Lauer staying right on him with some tough questions.

Ch-ch-check out a snippet of last night's interview (above), in which Lochte discusses his self-proclaimed "immature" behavior in Rio when he reported an armed robbery despite never actually being robbed.

Lauer also called out Lochte about straight up lying to Billy Bush and to Lauer himself, and the TV host sounds none too pleased about that.

Of course, the Olympic swimmer is struggling after a controversial week centered around being caught in a lie over a supposed armed robbery down in Rio — and now, he's paying the price in any number of ways.

As his own teammates waffle about what he's all about, though, there's no question Lochte is part happy to be home, and part nervous about what lies ahead.

The Olympian issued a statement apologizing for everything that happened:

"I want to offer a sincere apology to the United States Olympic Committee, USA Swimming, the extraordinary women and men of Team USA, and the University of Georgia.

Of course, Lochte has been in metaphorical hot water this week after claiming he was the victim of an armed robbery that took place down in Rio last weekend.

His story has been pretty thoroughly debunked by authorities, and even Lochte himself issued an apology for everything that went down during what's no doubt been a stressful, unfortunate few days for the American swimmer.

Things are not going swimmingly for him right now…

Ryan Lochte may have won a gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics, but he really captured the world's attention when he claimed that he and three of his teammates were robbed at gunpoint in Rio de Janeiro.

However, after local authorities confirmed that there actually was no mugging… Ryan finally apologized for his inappropriate behavior on Friday morning (though still didn't technically take responsibility for falsifying a police report).
