Ryan Lochte is losing all his endorsements after he admitted to making up a story about being robbed at gunpoint while at the 2016 Olympics.

Speedo USA and Japanese mattress maker Airweave said Monday that they were ending their partnership with the embattled U.S. swimmer. Ralph Lauren also said it would not renew his contract.
