It's the interview the whole world is waiting for: Lance Armstrong on Oprah.
According to a tweet from CBS This Morning, the interview cannot help but live up to the hype because we're going to get every last little bit of it:
Oprah announces she will air the Lance Armstrong interview in 2 nights, because it’s “impossible” to cut it down #OprahThisMorning— CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) January 15, 2013
CBS This Morning adds in a separate tweet that Oprah confirmed Armstrong's confession:
Oprah: I would say [Lance Armstrong]did not come clean in the manner I had expected. It was surprising to me. #OprahThisMorning— CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) January 15, 2013
Armstrong's interview was taped on Monday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, Texas, according to The Washington Post. Instead of airing only on Thursday, it will air on Thursday and Friday on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Thursday's broadcast will begin at 9 p.m. ET, while Friday's will begin at 8 p.m. ET, according to OWN.
On Monday night, an Associated Press source leaked that in the interview with Oprah, Armstrong admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs during his illustrious cycling career. Armstrong has denied PED use throughout his career, even after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency stripped him of his seven Tour de France titles because it found "systematic doping" on Armstrong's team, according to CBS News.
The USADA's case against Armstrong states that the cyclist used PEDs and blood transfusions "to gain a competitive edge throughout his career," according to USA Today.
Armstrong's confession comes after he reportedly apologized to his former staff at his foundation, Livestrong, for jeopardizing its reputation, according to ABC News.
Armstrong resigned from Livestrong in November because of "the controversy surrounding his cycling career," according to USA Today.
