Lance Armstrong admits to doping at Oprah Winfrey show

After denying it for so long, looks like Lance Armstrong has finally come clean. Lance used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France.

The disgraced cyclist accepted this to Oprah Winfrey during an interview taped yesterday, a person familiar with the situation said.

This has came after an emotional apology by Armstrong to the Livestrong charity that he founded.

Simply put, the confession was a stunning reversal, after so many interviews, public statements and court battles in which Armstrong denied doping and zealously protected his reputation.

Winfrey tweeted afterward, “Just wrapped with (at)lancearmstrong More than 2 1/2 hours. He came READY!” She was scheduled to appear on “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday to discuss the interview.

He was stripped of his Tour de France titles, lost majority of advertisement deals and was forced to leave the foundation last year after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency issued a 1,000-page report, accusing him of masterminding a doping scheme.

Armstrong is said to be worth around $100 million. But almost all the sponsors dropped him after USADA’s scathing report.

After the USADA findings, Armstrong was also barred from competing in the elite triathlon he participated in after the retirement from cycling.
