Top IOC official says Armstrong should confess

6:20 am on 17 October 2012

A top International Olympic Committee official says the disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong should come clean with a full confession about his drug taking.

The IOC vice president Thomas Bach also says the committee will be looking into ways of stripping Armstrong of his time trial bronze medal from the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

That issue depends on the International Cycling Union's inquiry into whether Armstrong should have competed at the Sydney Games or not.
