No question off limits when Oprah interviews Lance Armstrong

No question will be off-limits when Lance Armstrong sits down with Oprah Winfrey for a pre-recorded interview to air next week.

A spokeswoman for the talk show host's network says Armstrong will have no editorial control.

It will be Armstrong's first interview since he was stripped of his Tour de France titles after the US Anti-Doping Agency said he helped orchestrate the most sophisticated doping program in cycling history.

Last week, The New York Times reported that Armstrong was considering publicly admitting he used banned performance-enhancing drugs, in an apparent bid to return to competitive sport in marathons and triathlons.
