Lance Armstrong ADMITTED to Oprah Winfrey ... he DID use performance-enhancing drugs during his pro cycling career to win the Tour de France ... this according to the Associated Press.

Lance wrapped up his one-on-one interview with Oprah just a few hours ago ... and according to the report, Lance finally 'fessed up to cheating ... the first time he's ever admitted wrongdoing during his professional career.

Earlier in the day, Lance apologized to the staff at Livestrong, choking up and saying he was sorry for letting down the organization.

The way Lance worded his admission could have serious legal ramifications -- considering he's facing possible criminal prosecution and civil liability for allegedly lying about his PED use in a number of legal proceedings.

I bet this is why Sheryl Crow left him! She knew the **** storm wasn't far behind! And, I wonder if performance enhancing drugs can cause cancer. Hmmmmmmm? Too many people think "I'm sorry" makes it all better. Once a liar, always a liar!

Go to jail, Lance. Do not pass go, and give back the $200 million or so you've collected.

So many are saying they don't forgive him. Who are you to forgive him? He only needs to apologize to those directly hurt. How many skeletons are in your closet? We all have them. The only difference is, lucky for you, ours aren't made national news.

I think Lance Armstrong is an arrogant, manipulative liar...He cheated in order to win, while others worked their butts off to try and win honestly. Besides didn't he only came forward because he wanted to enter a cycling competition and couldn't due to his disgrace??
