Lance Armstrong's life could reportedly be featured in a blockbuster film following the UCI's decision to strip the cyclist from his record seven Tour de France titles due to evidence of doping.

The life of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong could reportedly be played out in a movie.

The 41-year-old has been stripped of his record seven Tour de France titles after the United States Anti-Doping Agency compiled a 1,000-page report, which provided damning evidence of doping against Armstrong.

"Most sports films end in an inspirational victory," The Sun quotes a film insider as saying.

"It's hard to work out what the ending would be. Lance was a hero before this scandal. The current ending is too depressing. It would be a more appealing story with a more hopeful final act."

Armstrong has also been asked by the International Cycling Union to return all the prize money he gained from winning the Tour de France between 1999 and 2005.
