Lance Armstrong will be stripped of the Olympic bronze medal that he won in Sydney, according to reports.

Lance Armstrong is to be stripped of his Olympic bronze medal, according to reports.

The 41-year-old came third in the individual time trial discipline in 2000, shortly after winning his second Tour de France title.

However, after Armstrong was stripped of the seven Tour de France titles that he achieved during his career due to doping offences, he has now been stripped of his Olympic medal, according to The AP.

An interview with American talkshow host Oprah Winfrey is to be aired during the early hours of Friday morning, where it has been reported that Armstrong confessed to taking performance-enhancing drugs during his career.
