Danish cyclist Michael Rasmussen admits to doping

Danish cyclist Michael Rasmussen has admitted to doping from 1998-2010, and has quit the sport, the Associated Press reports.

Rasmussen led the 2007 Tour de France until he was sacked by his team and withdrawn from the race after lying about his whereabouts when he missed pre-race drug tests.
