Ryan Lochte injured by fan

Wednesday November 6, 2013

Swimming sensation Ryan Lochte is out of action due to suffering an injury after he was jumped on by an "over enthusiastic fan".

While training in Gainesville, Florida the five-time gold medal winner was jumped upon by a fan. Ryan tried to catch the girl but unfortunately they both fell in the process, hitting the curb.

The fall caused the Olypmic champion to tear a ligament and sprain another in his left knee leaving him unable to train but he hopes "to make a full and speedy recovery" in time to represent the US in the Duel in the Pool meet in Scotland on 20 December.
