Library jokes Armstrong's books work of fiction

9:49 pm on 21 January 2013

An Australian library sign has promised to re-shelve books by disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong to the fiction section.

The sign was posted in a Sydney library at the weekend, the BBC reports.

All non-fiction books by the 41-year-old American including Lance Armstrong: Images of a Champion would soon be moved to the fiction section, it read.

A council spokesperson says the sign was a joke and that local libraries could not arbitrarily reclassify books.

Last week, Armstrong ended years of denial by admitting that he used performance-enhancing drugs during all seven of his Tour de France wins in an interview with talkshow host Oprah Winfrey.
