Armstrong quits as Chairman of LiveStrong amid allegations of cheating

Nike has severed ties with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, citing insurmountable evidence that he participated in doping and misled the company about those activities for more than a decade.

The fallout from the 1,000 page USADA report, which convicts Armstrong of doping throughout his career, has also seen him step down from his role as Chairman of the LiveStrong Foundation overnight.

Meanwhile, cycling Australia has sacked former Olympian Matt White for his role in the doping scandal.

White was a selector for CA and resigned last week, when the USADA’s report was released, but the cycling body has officially cut all ties with him.
