Lance Armstrong "mesmerised and riveted" Oprah Winfrey on Monday when he reportedly confessed to doping. The talk show host said that she prepared, but was surprised by Armstrong's answers in an interview that airs Thursday and Friday.

"I would say that he did not come clean in the manner that I expected, it was surprising to me," Winfrey said yesterday on CBS network's This Morning. "I'd say that for myself, my team... all of us in the room were mesmerised, riveted by some of his answers."
