Lance Armstrong and Yaroslav Popovych

Lance Armstrong's former team-mate Yaroslav Popovych faced federal prosecutors for 90 minutes in a grand jury hearing yesterday in Los Angeles. The 30-year-old Ukrainian testified he had not witnessed doping while part of Armstrong's teams in 2005, 2009 and 2010.

"He doesn't know anything about what the focus of the investigation is," Popovych's attorney, Ken Miller, told New York's Daily News. "He did testify and he's happy to have it behind him."
