Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
After years of denying doping, Lance Armstrong is expected to make a confession to Oprah Winfrey today. The interview is set to be broadcast Thursday.
The cyclist is expected to come clean on allegations of doping and using performance-enhancing drugs surrounding his Tour de France wins, as well as issue an apology to the public, reports ESPN.
