Report: Lance Armstrong Admits To Doping
After seven Tour De France trophies, and years of speculation, the Associated Press is reporting that cancer survivor and former professional cyclist Lance Armstrong admits to doping during an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The AP reports:
A person familiar with the situation says Lance Armstrong confessed to Oprah Winfrey during an interview Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the interview is to be broadcast Thursday on Winfrey’s network. CBS News cannot confirm the veracity of the AP source, but Winfrey will appear on “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday to talk about the Armstrong interview.
Armstrong recently was stripped of all of his trophies after a report that portrayed him as a “ruthless competitor, willing to go to any lengths to win the prestigious race”.
The interview will air Thursday on Winfrey’s network.
