Lance Armstrong had an interview with Oprah Winfrey that was taped for Thursday's show. During this interview, he confesses to his doping allegations. The interview lasted two and a half hours.
Armstrong won seven Tour de France titles that were stripped and is now banned for life after doping. Oprah appeared on CBS This Morning where she shed some light on how her interview went with Armstrong. According to CBS News, Oprah said that Armstrong was “forthcoming,” and that he "did not come clean in the manner that I expected." She did point out that although thrown off by his approach, she was still pleased with his answers.
Armstrong misled people by lying to them about taking performance enhancing drugs and calling out people who said he did use them. After coming out and admitting it, Armstrong is receiving a lot of backlash from the public about his deception.
Pat McQuaid, the president of the International Cycling Union, spoke at a conference and gave his opinion on the matter. According to ABC News, he said, "Lance Armstrong has no place in cycling and he deserves to be forgotten in cycling."
