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.

Not only a cheater but a liar, no wonder he got cancer, full of lies will do that to a person.
He should be so ashamed of himself, he's a disgrace to the sport, his fans and his children.

This guy beat cancer numerous times and even though he cheated, he at least said something. Clemens and Bonds haven't come out and said im sorry they call the media liars. This guy in my eyes is still influential for his defeat of cancer, something that many can't do.

Lance is a pathetic piece of sh*t. He threw a clean cyclist and American Greg Lemond under the bus when Lemond questioned Lance. He bullied a lot of other people and tried to or did destroy them to protect his lies. This guy is a sorry excuse and needs to just go away or die already.

Well, no matter what, he still has done a lot of good for cancer patients, and no one can take that away. Can anyone here say they have done as much?
