THE man who brought down Lance Armstrong has revealed he had death threats while working on the case.

Travis Tygart, the head of the US Anti-Doping Agency, said he had been forced to increase security measures following his investigation into Armstrong's alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs.

"The Armstrong affair has prompted death threats against me. I received three of them, individual initiatives, in my opinion. The FBI is taking care of that," Tygart told French newspaper L'Equipe.

In August, Armstrong, who claimed Tygart has a vendetta against him, dropped any further challenges to USADA's allegations that he took performance-enhancing drugs.
