S Times: 'Stronger case' for Armstrong legal action

The Sunday Times believes its case for recovering the £1 million it paid Lance Armstrong after losing a libel action is "even stronger" following his recent confession.

A Sunday Times spokesman said:

We watched Lance Armstrong's interview with interest and noted his numerous admissions regarding taking performance-enhancing drugs.

The Sunday Times believes that our case for recovering the £1 million he obtained from us by fraud is now even stronger.

We will be pursuing that case vigorously.
