He's known for his incredible swimming skills and charming good looks, but unfortunately for Ryan Lochte one of those things has taken a sudden turn for the worst.

On Tuesday (November 5), it was announced that the 11-time Olympic medalist was taking an immediate break from swimming after he tore his MCL and sprained the ACL in his left knee.

According to reports, Ryan was excitedly greeted by a female fan in Florida who allegedly ran into him causing him to fall and hit his knee on a curb.

Although he is currently stopping all competing and training for the moment, his medical team does expect a full recovery.
