US Olympic team doctor sentenced to 175 years in prison

The disgraced long-time team doctor, Larry Nassar, apologised to his victims on Wednesday ahead of his sentencing for molesting young female gymnasts but a judge dismissed his words as insincere.

Following days of testimony from more than 160 of his victims, Nassar stood before the court in a dark blue jailhouse jumpsuit and addressed the dozens of women in the Michigan courtroom.

"Your words have had a significant emotional effect to myself and shaken me to my core ... an acceptable apology to all of you is impossible to write or say," he said.
