As public confessions go Lance Armstrong the disgraced cycling champ, convicted of doping, to win all seven of his tour de France titles. A no holds barred hard hitting interview with Oprah Winfrey on her massively successful US talk was never going to be on the cards. But Oprah did get Armstrong to finally admit he cheated. And which banned substances he used

OPRAH WINFREY: "Yes or no. In all seven Tour de France of your Tour De France victories did you ever take banned substances or blood dope?


OPRAH WINFREY: "In your opinion is it humanly possible to win the Tour de France without doping seven times in a row?"

LANCE ARMSTRONG "Not in my opinion"

OPRAH WINFREY: "Yes or no. Did you ever take banned substances to enhance your cycling performance?


OPRAH WINFREY: "Yes or no. Was one of those substances EPO?"


OPRAH WINFREY: "Did you ever blood dope or use blood transfusions to enhance your cycling performance?"


However there is widespread belief amongst experts there is a wider use of doping in the sport and that Armstrong couldn't have continued doping without the help or involvement of other institutions or individuals. But as no names were revealed then Armstrong's charity organisation looks safe even with Armstrong's personal tarnished image
