Sunday Times has ten questions for Oprah to ask Lance Armstrong

8:59 am on 14 January 2013

The British newspaper The Sunday Times has taken out an advertisement in the Chicago Tribune with 10 questions they want the talk show host Oprah Winfrey to ask disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong.

The Sunday Times announced last month it was suing Armstrong for over $2 million over a libel payment made to him in 2006 - picked the Chicago Tribune as it is in the city where Winfrey hosts her show.

Among the questions the paper asks are whether Armstrong told doctors in 1996 that he used performance enhancing drugs, whether he intends to return his prize money, and whether he accepts lying to the cancer community was the greatest deception of all.

The crux of the matter is whether Armstrong, having been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, will finally admit that he was a drugs cheat.

Armstrong has always maintained that he did not use banned substances during his career.

The Sunday Times was one of the few publications to openly query Armstrong's innocence during his career.
