IOC Strips Lance Armstrong of bronze medal

CNN -- The International Olympic Committee says it's called on cyclist Lance Armstrong to return the bronze medal he won at the 2000 Olympic Games.

The move came in advance of a televised interview in which Armstrong is believed to admit for the first time he used prohibited performance-enhancing drugs.

Talk show host Oprah Winfrey has not released details of exactly what Armstrong said in the recorded interview.

But on Tuesday she appeared to confirm media reports that the former seven-time Tour de France champion admits doping and lying about it.
