Lance Armstrong settles $100m US government lawsuit for $5m

In a world full of Lance Armstrongs and Lance wannabe ...

"I rode my heart out for the Postal cycling team, and was always especially proud to wear the red, white and blue eagle on my chest when competing in the Tour de France. Those memories are very real and mean a lot to me.
"I'm looking forward to devoting myself to the many great things in my life - my five kids, my wife, my podcast, several exciting writing and film projects, my work as a cancer survivor, and my passion for sports and competition."
Lance Armstrong
“I will simply restate what I have said many times: I have never taken performance enhancing drugs (except for my Erythropoietin, my Human Growth Hormone and my blood doping). Yes, I am a demigod, an inveterate liar, a nasty cocksucker, a recidivist and won lots of endorsements illegally. I cheat, defy. My wry motto: a leopard will never transform its spots. Testicular cancer was joy compared to my fate now. It affects me. Stop me from going down the gurgler.”
