Author: No-one wanted to tell the truth about Armstrong

Before Lance Armstrong's interview with Oprah Winfrey was broadcast, Max Foster spoke to David Walsh, author of "Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong". Walsh first raised questions about Armstrong back in 1999. His newspaper, The Sunday Times, was later sued by Armstrong for libel. The sports writer says he never felt vindicated and knew from day one he was right. Walsh says it was a story that no-one wanted to tell because Armstrong was seen as an iconic figure. He believes Armstrong can regain some trust but he will never be seen as an icon again.
