Lance Armstrong Allegedly Tells Oprah He Doped During Racing Career

By January 14, 2013

Follow me on:

Lance Armstrong sat down with talk show legend Oprah Winfrey on Monday and told her he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France, reports the Associated Press (AP).

The revelation, if true, is a shocker, if only because Armstrong has vehemently denied taking performance-enhancing drugs - or doping - for many years.

The AP received its tip about the confessional from source close to the interview, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The interview will take place on Thursday's Oprah's Next Chapter on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network.

After a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) report claimed that Armstrong and his U.S. Postal Service team led one of "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program(s) that sport has ever seen," Armstrong was stripped of all seven Tour de France titles he'd won.

Winfrey will discuss the interview on CBS This Morning Tuesday morning. CBS This Morning is co-hosted by former Winfrey colleague Gayle King.
