January 15, 2013 – Cyclist Lance Armstrong apologised to staff on Monday at the Livestrong foundation’s office in Austin, Texas, according to a publicist for the foundation.
Katherine McLane did not provide any information about what Armstrong was apologising for.
The apology came ahead of Armstrong’s scheduled interview with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey – his first since he was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles in a doping scandal.
“We just received a comment from the Director of Communications for the Livestrong Foundation about what Armstrong said today.
“Lance came to the LIVESTRONG Foundation’s headquarters today for a private conversation with our staff and offered a sincere and heartfelt apology for the stress they’ve endured because of him and urged them to keep up their great work fighting for people affected by cancer,” Rae Bazzarre said.
