Cyclist Lance Armstrong reportedly apologized to the staff at his charity Livestrong before taping an interview with television talkshow host Oprah Winfrey Monday.
Livestrong spokeswoman Katherine McLane told USA Today that Armstrong offered a "very sincere and heartfelt apology to the staff," but didn't elaborate on what the apology was for. Armstrong launched Livestrong as part of his foundation in 2003. Its mission is to support anyone affected by cancer.
Armstrong, who survived testicular cancer in 1996, has been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles in the wake of a doping scandal. He was set to sit down for an interview with Winfrey Monday afternoon.
His promise to answer all questions has lead to speculation that he would use the interview to admit to doping charges he had previously repeatedly and strongly denied.
The interview is scheduled to be broadcast Thursday at 9 p.m. on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
