Lochte’s wife Kayla Rae Reid reportedly updated fans on Sunday on her own Instagram story.

“Everyone asking about Ryan, he’s still in the hospital,” she said. “He’s doing okay, doing fine, I think. Still in some pain from the surgery.”

Lochte returned home later Sunday, according to Reid.

The former Olympian has reportedly been training to compete in next year’s Olympics. The summer Olympics were delayed due to coronavirus.

Lochte’s return to competing comes after he was hit with a 14-month suspension by the US Anti-Doping Agency and a battle with a “serious” alcohol addiction.
