Lance Armstrong has split with the Livestrong cancer foundation he began 15 years ago after being found guilty of doping throughout his professional riding career. According to the Bloomberg news agency, his last day as a Livestrong board member was November 4, 18 days after he stepped down as chairman.

Armstrong essentially admitted guilt and that he doped his way to seven Tour de France victories when he refused to defend himself in the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) case. The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) officially stripped him of the wins on October 22.
