Johan Bruyneel

Lance Armstrong's long-time manager, Johan Bruyneel received a 10-year ban from sport this morning from the American Arbitration Association (AAA). In its case against Armstrong in 2012, the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) showed that the Belgian helped and encouraged his riders at teams US Postal Service and Discovery Channel to dope.

A statement read: "[The three-member panel] found that the evidence establishes conclusively that Mr Bruyneel was at the apex of a conspiracy to commit widespread doping on the USPS and Discovery Channel teams spanning many years and many riders."
