The Livestrong Foundation has released a statement after Lance Armstrong's interview with Oprah Winfrey in which he admits to taking performance enhancing drugs during his cycling career.
We at the LIVESTRONG Foundation are disappointed by the news that Lance Armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, including us.
Even in the wake of our disappointment, we also express our gratitude to Lance as a survivor for the drive, devotion and spirit he brought to serving cancer patients and the entire cancer community.
- The Livestrong cancer charity has previously told ITV News that they are separate from Lance Armstrong's sporting career and his fall from grace has not affected how the charity is viewed. Watch the video here.
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.
