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.

Of all the cheaters on the course, he was the fastest. The sport is dirty, not just Lance.

Her is a jerk and a liar. He deserves to go to jail like that female track star. After insisting so many times that he didn't cheat he makes me sick. Of course he also cheated on his wife and the mother of his kids so this is the type of guy he is. Douche.

Filing a defamation suit takes the cake. I am glad he will lose that money he won in the defamation lawsuit as well as a lot more money probably.

He might have gotten cancer because he took steroids.

So what? Drugs are cool. Cheating is normal. I break doctor-patient confidentiality all the time by talking about my client's effed-up problems on the internet, which is quite sleazy.... We're all deviants. Give him some slack, he's only got one nut.

What he did not only shamed himself, but he shamed the U.S. when he chose to cheat. The only way to win is through hard work and determination!
