A former Olympic team doctor, Larry Nassar, has been sentenced to 175 years in jail, a sentence that added to the 60 years he had already received for child pornography charges.
Nassar was found guilty of sexually abusing nearly nearly 160 girls and women under the guise of medical treatment.
He apologized in court to his victims, who included Olympic gold-medal winners Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney and many more female athletes at Michigan State University where he worked.
UK correspondent Adam Gilchrist has more on the story.

He came across a lot of women and they trusted him. It was a remarkable trial because one by one there were these awful, gut wrenching statements from 156 of his accusers and ultimately a sort of apology from him although as the judge put it, a hollow apology.— Adam Gilchrist, UK correspondent
