Filming begins on Armstrong biopic
American actor Ben Foster begins filming a biopic centred on the life and career of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong.

American actor Ben Foster appears to have begun filming scenes for the upcoming biopic about disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong.

The 32-year-old was photographed filming part of the movie, which is being created by Stephen Frears, on the Tour de France trail recreating Armstrong's victories.

Foster donned lycra professional racing gear used to represent the United States Postal Service, as well as the famous yellow jersey.

The biopic comes after Armstrong was given a lifetime ban from cycling and stripped of his seven Tour de France titles last year following evidence of doping.
