Lance Armstrong has said that he led by example in doping while team captain:
Even if I don't say it and I do it and I'm the leader of the team, you're leading by example so that's a problem.
I was a bully. I tried to control the narrative.
Lance Armstrong cannot expect to be redeemed after his brief TV confession. Names must be named.
Tyler Hamilton, a former team-mate of Lance Armstrong who implicated him in the doping scandal, has told ITV News, "I'm proud of him".
The self-flagellation makes for gripping television but it does not really amount to much in the long run.
