US media are hoping new doping allegations being investigated against Lance Armstrong will bring to an end a long-running saga involving the seven-times Tour de France champion.

Armstrong is the subject of fresh allegations by the United States Anti-Doping Agency which could see him stripped of his titles.

The Washington Post describes the latest development as Armstrong's most serious threat, as the anti-doping agency almost never loses cases.
