Really? Well Shit, I had No Idea…

Looks like the drugs cheat denier may have come clean in his interview with Oprah Winfrey today:

Lance Armstrong, who for years vehemently denied cheating while winning a record seven Tours de France, told Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs to advance his cycling career, according to media reports.

ABC News and USA Today, citing unnamed sources, reported Monday night that the former cyclist finally admitted to using steroids during an interview he and Winfrey taped Monday night in Armstrong’s hometown of Austin, Texas.

Armstrong was emotional at times during the session, a source, who was familiar with the interview, told CNN.

The person refused to discuss the specifics of what Armstrong said, including whether he confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs as ABC and USA Today reported.

Armstrong also might pay back part of the money he received from the U.S. Postal Service, which sponsored the cyclist and his team while he was winning six of his Tours de France, the source said. – source

The interview will screen on Friday NZ time on Sky.
