Their candid chat will not air until Thursday but a source close to the show has revealed that Lance Armstrong admitted to using performance enhancing drugs to Oprah Winfrey.
It’s been a rough few months for Armstrong who was first accused of doping and later stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned from professional cycling for life. Due to the scandal, Armstrong was forced to step down from his role with his cancer charity the Livestrong Foundation. Before sitting down with the talk show legend yesterday Armstrong spoke with his Livestrong staff, apologizing for all of the stress he has put them under and encouraging them to keep up the good work.
After yesterday’s interview Oprah took to Twitter to say, “Just wrapped with @lancearmstong More than 2 ½ hours. He came READY!” Armstrong had apparently said in regards to the interview. “I told her to go wherever she wants and I’ll answer the questions directly, honestly and candidly. That’s all I can say.”
