CYCLING: Armstrong agrees to pay Sunday Times newspaper
2013-08-26 08:56:14 | (0 Comments)
Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong has agreed a settlement with the Sunday Times after it sued him for about £1 million.
The 41-year-old Armstrong was paid £300,000 to settle a libel case in 2004 after the newspaper alleged he had cheated.
After US officials last year found Armstrong had led a "sophisticated" doping programme, the paper demanded the money back plus interest and costs.
The Sunday Times says it had reached a "mutually acceptable final resolution".
David Walsh, the chief sports writer of the Sunday Times, first raised questions about Armstrong in 1999, when he won the Tour de France for the first†time.
