Seto will be unable to compete in official events or train until the end of the year.In the aftermath of the scandal, the swimmer resigned as captain of the Olympic team.
Despite this, Seto is still eligible for the Tokyo Olympics, which will take place eventually.Daiya Seto, a married father, was photographed entering a hotel room with a young lady earlier this month by Japanese magazine Shkan Shinch.
Since then, the case has sparked controversy because it does not involve his wife, diver Mabuchi Yuka.
The 26-year-old told Hochi Sports in an interview:How can I apologize? I asked myself the question, and I think my apologies are for continuing to swim, to regain the confidence of my family who have been deeply hurt by my irresponsible behaviour.
His gesture will also cost him dearly financially since, according to ESPN, he agreed to end his agreement with his sponsor, All Nippon Airways.
