Armstrong admits to doping in Winfrey interview


12:56, January 15, 2013

Lance Armstrong has reportedly admitted to doping in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.(

Lance Armstrong, the seven-time winner of the Tour de France, has reportedly admitted to Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his professional cycling career.

A person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity says that Lance Armstrong apologized to the staff at his Livestrong Cancer Foundation on Monday before the taping of his interview with Oprah Winfrey later today.

According to the anonymous person, who has direct knowledge of the meeting, Armstrong choked up as he told the staff he was sorry and several staff members cried when he did.

Armstrong apologised for letting the staff down and putting Livestrong at risk but he did not make a direct confession to using banned drugs.

Neither Winfrey nor Armstrong confirmed the report.

"We are not confirming any specific details regarding the interview at this time," a spokesman for Oprah's network OWN said.

Armstrong was stripped of all seven Tour titles last year in the wake of a voluminous US Anti-Doping Agency report that portrayed him as a ruthless competitor, willing to go to any lengths to win the prestigious race.

The cyclist's taped interview with Winfrey today marks the first time he has responded in public to the USADA report, although he reportedly did not provide a detailed account about his involvement or go into detail about the specific allegations contained in the 1,000 plus pages of the USADA report.
