Lance Armstrong admits to doping during Oprah interview

DISGRACED cyclist Lance Armstrong has reportedly admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France.

It comes after earlier reports that Armstrong "choked up" in an apology to staff at his cancer foundation ahead of his mooted tell-all interview.
