We are so glad Ryan Lochte is OK!

As you remember from yesterday, the Olympic swimming star was held up at gunpoint and robbed on a night out in Rio over the weekend — so scary!

To make matters worse, the US Olympic Committee didn’t even bother to check if his story was true before erroneously denying everything, so Lochte didn’t exactly have his own people in his corner!

But thankfully, it sounds like the swimmer is now getting on just fine, as he showed off Sunday afternoon in an Instagram post on his account, writing (below):

Lochte’s Olympics are over, of course — all the swimming events finished up over the weekend — but he isn’t home free yet.

But the most important part is that he’s safe and healthy, and hopefully he won’t experience any more of the abundant horror stories down in Rio!
