Lance Armstrong's lawyer has said the cyclist won't be interviewed under oath by a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency official who wanted him to tell them all he knows about doping, according to the AP news agency.

USADA officials had said the disgraced cyclist must speak with them if he hoped to reduce his lifetime ban from sports. Today was the deadline for him to agree to speak to them.

Tim Herman said the process served "only to demonise selected individuals."
