Armstrong urged to make 'full confession under oath'

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has urged Lance Armstrong to make a "full confession under oath" following his doping admission to Oprah Winfrey.

The WADA said it was "interested" to listen to his confession, but reiterated that it has made "no difference" to his status as a life-time banned athlete under the World Anti-Doping Code.

If Mr. Armstrong truly wants to make amends for his doping past, then he needs to make a full confession under oath to the relevant anti-doping authorities.

He must make a sworn statement that reveals the full truth and contains information that will assist the fight against doping in sport.
