Jimmy Feigen, a U.S. Olympic swimmer apparently connected to the scandal involving Ryan Lochte, has reportedly agreed to donate $11,000 to a charity in Brazil in return for being allowed to leave the country. Two other swimmers, Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz, have already been allowed to return to the United States. The USOC is apologizing to Brazil, saying surveillance video confirms that Lochte’s story of being robbed in Rio was fabricated. NBC’s Keir Simmons reports for TODAY from Rio.
