Lance Armstrong grants Oprah exclusive interview

Lance Armstrong will give an exclusive TV interview to Oprah Winfrey where he will reportedly open up regarding the continued doping allegations against him.

The cyclist, who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles last year, will talk to Oprah from his Texas home where he will address the “alleged doping scandal, years of accusations of cheating, and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his career”.

Before the interview was announced, The New York Times reported recently that Armstrong was on the verge of admitting that he used performance-enhancing drugs while riding the Tour.

The interview will take place on Thursday, January 17 and will be the first time Armstrong has spoken publically following the loss of his seven Tour titles.
