A Twitter message published by Oprah Winfrey says Lance Armstrong came prepared for the interview with her, and the session lasted over 2.5 hours.
According to USA Today, in a few clips shown briefly at the top of CBS This Morning at 7 a.m. ET, Armstrong looked nervous, and the interview was described as emotional. The two sat simply in chairs, facing one another, glasses of water with straws sitting on a small table for each. As Armstrong enters the interview area, Winfrey gets up to greet him.
The UCI will not be making any further comments on matters concerning Lance Armstrong until it has had the opportunity to view his much publicized interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The UCI notes the media speculation surrounding the interview and reports that he has finally come clean and admitted doping during his cycling career.
If these reports are true, we would strongly urge Lance Armstrong to testify to the Independent Commission established to investigate the allegations made against the UCI in the recent USADA reasoned decision on Lance Armstrong and the United States Postal Service (USPS) team.
