Could it get any worse for him? We don't think so!
Following a report from the U.S Doping Agency that accused Lance Armstrong of leading a massive doping program, the cyclist has been stripped of all seven of his Tour de France titles and banned for life by cycling's governing body.
Tour de France organizers will officially remove Armstrong's name from the record books, effectively erasing his victories from 1999-2005. There will now be no official winners for those years.
According to the USADA report, Artmstrong and his teams used steroids, the blood booster EPO and blood transfusions. The report included statements from 11 former teammates who testified against Armstrong.
The disgraced athlete stepped down as chairman of the Livestrong cancer charity last week amid doping allegations. He was also dropped by numerous sponsors, including Nike.
Cheaters never prosper, Lance!
