Armstrong bids to keep sponsorship money

4:52 pm on 25 July 2013

Lawyers for the disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong say he should be able to keep the sponsorship money he got from the US Postal Service during his record-breaking victories, despite his admission to using performance-enhancing drugs.

In court papers filed in Washington Armstrong's lawyers say the Postal Service benefited from the sponsorship and they've asked a judge to dismiss the federal government's fraud lawsuit demanding its money back.
