Lance Armstrong fans on Oprah 'doping confession'

Lance Armstrong's fans have been giving their reaction to speculation he may have admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs while taping a TV interview.

One fan outside the cyclist's Livestrong Foundation in his hometown of Austin, Texas, said: "Now to find out it was based on lies... It hurts all of us."

Last year the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) accused him of what it called "the most sophisticated, professionalised and successful doping program" the sport had ever seen.

His interview with Oprah Winfrey is due to be broadcast in the US on Thursday.
