Cycling: Lance Armstrong's lawyer revealed today that the cyclist might take a lie detector test in an attempt to prove he is innocent of doping allegations.
The Texan has been labelled a “serial cheat” by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which has stripped him of his seven Tour de France titles and banned him from cycling for life.
But his lawyer Tim Herman said he would be keen for the 26 witnesses who testified against Armstrong (pictured) to the USADA to take lie detector tests.
He said: “A lie detector test properly administered, I’m a proponent of that frankly, just personally. I wouldn’t challenge the results of a lie detector test with good equipment, properly administered by a qualified technician. That’s a pretty simple answer.”
Asked if Armstrong would take a lie detector test himself, Herman said: “We might do that, you never know.”
