US Olympic swimmers barred from flying home

US Olympic swimmers Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger have been barred from flying home by Brazilian authorities.

The two men were taken off a plane as police sought to query their accounts of a robbery they reported in Rio on Sunday.

Sergio Viegas, the swimmers' defence lawyer said: "They will obviously co-operate with justice and the police."
