Armstrong: Leaving Livestrong the most 'humbling moment'

Lance Armstrong has said that severing all ties with his Livestrong Foundation was his most humbling moment.

That was the most humbling moment. To get that call - two parts. One: step as chairman, but stay on the board - stay involved. [But] that wasn't enough for the people, for our supporters. Then a couple of weeks later the next call came - 'we need you to step aside'. It was the best thing for the organisation, but it hurt like hell. That was the lowest.
