Ryan Lochte isn't the only one apologizing about that made-up robbery story!

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. Being a member of the Olympic Swimming Team was an honor and a dream come true. The accomplishments of my teammates were awe-inspiring and I'm so pleased I got to see them up close. I regret this situation has drawn attention away from the Olympics, which have been hosted so incredibly well by Brazil and its citizens."

Al Roker may be the weatherman of the Today show, but he is bringing down the HEAT on Ryan Lochte for lying about getting robbed in Rio!

On Friday's broadcast, the NBC anchor went off on the Olympic swimmer after it was revealed his claims of being robbed at gunpoint with teammates Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger, at a gas station in Brazil were false!

After Lochte insisted he was telling the truth, surveillance footage from the gas station showed that the swimmers were not robbed, but had a confrontation with security guards after causing damage to the bathroom — clearly exposing the Olympian's lie!

Not only did Roker slam the athlete for repeatedly lying about his story (nobody lies to Matt Lauer and gets away with it!), but for leaving his teammates detained in Brazil — where Bentz and Conger eventually admitted that their story was "fabricated" — while he jetted back to the US.

After his on air spout, Roker took to Twitter to retweet Lochte's apology, advising others to "accept it and move on":

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).

His privilege may be keeping him from seeing the severity of his actions right now, but we have a feeling that losing MILLIONS in endorsements may just drive the point home!

According to a Forbes estimate, the 32-year-old could say goodbye to anywhere between $5-$10 million in future wages if he loses contracts with brands like Ralph Lauren, Speedo, and Airweave due to

U.S. Olympic Committee Confirms Ryan Lochte Was NOT Robbed & Apologizes To Brazil For Swimmers' 'Unacceptable' Behavior! Read The Statement!

It looks like the case is officially closed on #LochteGate!

Ever since Ryan Lochte claimed he and three Olympic swimmers were held up at gunpoint at a gas station bathroom in Rio early Sunday morning, there's been doubt whether the athletes were actually the victims of crime.

On Thursday, United States Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun confirmed what Brazilian police have been saying all week, that Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, and Jimmy Feigen were the committers of crime that night — and had been involved in vandalizing a gas station bathroom.

Throughout the week, Lochte insisted he was telling the truth — that he and his teammates were robbed by men dressed as police officers — but raised some eyebrows when parts of his story didn't add up and was inconsistent when retold in an interview with Matt Lauer.

However, during a Thursday press conference, Civil Police Chief Fernando Veloso said there "was no robbery," and that Brazilian authorities believe the Olympians lied to cover up

Ryan Lochte is STILL standing by his story.

During a press conference on Thursday, Rio's Chief of Civil Police Fernando Velaso told the media that "there was no robbery" at gunpoint, like the Olympian had claimed.

Ryan Lochte doesn't give a f*ck that his teammates admitted to lying about getting robbed at gunpoint in Rio! The scandalized swimmer is STILL maintaining that he was telling the truth.

The Olympian's teammates Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz revealed their story was fabricated after surveillance video showed them fighting with a security guard.

However, sources say the 32-year-old and his team are claiming the footage was edited to exclude the part of the incident in which the athletes were taken out of their cab at gunpoint.

And, insiders explain the sports star allegedly mistook the security guards' uniforms for police attire.

But the confidantes can't make any excuses for the part of Ryan's story that claims their taxi was pulled over in the middle of a trip, since they were caught on camera at a gas station.

In fact, one source said of that plot hole:
