Olympic swimming champion Ryan Lochte could miss next month's Duel in the Pool in Glasgow, after injuring his knee when a teenage fan knocked him over in Florida.

Lochte suffered knee ligament injuries when an enthusiastic girl collided with him causing him to fall and hit his knee on the kerb.

The Duel in the Pool is swimming's equivalent of golf's Ryder Cup, and pits a United States team against Europe.
