WADA chief slams Lance Armstrong interview

Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong gave a "weasel" admission in a "controlled PR exercise" in a TV interview, says the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). The agency's head, John Fahey slammed the Oprah Winfrey interview last night and said Armstrong continues to lie.

"The USADA invited him to come clean and advised he would have to give evidence under oath and provide substantial assistance and, if he indicated the nature of the evidence - and he would have to name times, dates, people - there may be a consideration of reducing his life sentence to a term of years," Fahey told The Daily Telegraph. "But he never came back, he went to Oprah instead and that indicates how sincere he really was. He wanted to control the way his story was told."
