I suppose after testicular cancer - he didn't care about the side effects of these drugs -- but what a devastating blow to his life! It's very sad.

What took him so long? It's a shame what has happened to him because of this scandal. Live and learn.

Lance may have had to replace a low testosterone level. I feel sorry for him. There is always an enormous amount of pressure on sporting celebrities.

For someone who so vehemently denied the charges it is too little, too late in my opinion.

we all battle with our own demons. no one is perfect. the media made him a hero. all along he was just a man who made mistakes. i can respect him for finally coming clean to Oprah.

He didn't have a lot of choice. I'm just surprised that it took so long to catch him.

Doping is spoiling people's enjoyment of sport. Now when someone wins with a record-breaking performance our first thought is whether they did it fairly or cheated by taking drugs or blood transfusions etc. So sad.
Lance Armstrong, like many others before him, eventually got caught and now has to hang his head in shame, but only after years of trying to lie his way out of it. Sportsmen and women like him are models for the young, so finding out their performance was not due to effort but cheating, what's that teaching the following generations?

After years of making other people out to be liars,it is about time he confessed to what everyone knew all along. Shame on him,

being a cancer survivor it would have been awesome for him just to have finished the race. that in itself would have been a win.
