Ryan Lochte describes robbery at Rio Olympics

American swimmer Ryan Lochte says armed robbers posing as policemen put a gun to his head and took his money in Rio de Janeiro.
    
Lochte described the late-night encounter to NBC’s "Today" show.
    
The U.S. swimmer, who won gold in the 4×200 relay at the Rio Games, says armed men came out with a badge and pulled a taxi carrying him and three other American swimmers over.
    
Lochte says they were told to get down on the ground, but he didn’t and they put a gun to his forehead. He says the robbers took money and his wallet, but left his cell phone.
