talkSPORT special - The Lance Armstrong Story From cancer survivor and cycling legend to a disgraced athlete - Lance Armstrong's admission after years of speculation of what has been called "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen" shocked the world.

He was stripped of his record breaking titles, given a lifetime ban and shamed the cycling community. He consequently resigned from his foundation and former sponsors began legal proceedings - a monumental fall from grace.

UK talk radio station talkSPORT documents the cyclist's career from his early beginnings, battle with cancer, glory days of 7 successive Tour de France wins and ultimate downfall - lifting the lid of the golden boy public image to reveal a win at all cost bully and drug cheat.

Originally broadcast in early 2013 shortly after Lance finally admitted his deception in a cathartic 2 part television special to Oprah Winfrey, and now available as a podcast, The Lance Armstrong Story is a compelling insight into the double life the man whose tarnished name will go down in cycling history for all the wrong reasons.
