Michael Phelps, the 18-time Olympic swim champion arrested last week for drunk driving, was banned for six months by USA Swimming and dropped from the 2015 World Championships.

Yesterday's punishments came six days after Phelps was apprehended by police in his hometown of Baltimore and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, excessive speed and crossing the centre line while driving inside a tunnel.

On Sunday, Phelps said on Twitter that he would be taking a break from swimming and "take some time away to attend a programme" for treatment of unspecified personal issues.
