Lance Armstrong just admitted to doping in a 2 1/2 hour long interview with Oprah Winfrey, and now that his INSANE secret is out of the bag, the anti-doping officials want him under oath!!
On Tuesday, the International Cycling Union expressed that they knew what the cycler said to Winfrey, and wanted him to tell his story to an independent agency.
And while he's already apologized to Livestrong, he's still in big trouble with the people that paid him out for his "wins."
The Sunday Times is looking to recover the $500,000 they paid him to resolve a libel case, and the government of South Australia wants the millions of dollars they rewarded him for competing in the Tour Down Under in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
But that's not even everything, Armstrong is also being threatened with another $7.5 million lawsuit for the monies he was given during the Tour de France win.
Armstrong is definitely NOT gonna come out winning in these cases — especially since he already admitted that he was indeed doping.
Guess he has to learn his lesson somehow. So sad.
