Any confession by Armstrong could have legal or financial ramifications, particularly among big name corporate sponsors such as Nike that had loyally stood by him even as doping allegations grew.

payment made to him in 2006. It had paid Armstrong to settle a libel case after publishing a story suggesting he may have cheated, and now wants that money plus interest and legal costs repaid. On Sunday, the Sunday Times took out an ad in the Chicago Tribune, suggesting 10 questions that Winfrey, whose OWN network is based in the Midwestern metropolis, should ask Armstrong. "Is it your intention to return the prize money you earned from Sept. 1998 to July 2010?" read one question. "Did you sue the Sunday Times to shut us up?" went another. A Texas insurance company has also threatened legal action to recoup millions of dollars in bonuses it paid him for multiple Tour victories.
Journalists staked out Armstrong's home in Austin earlier Monday ahead of his interview with Winfrey, during which the cyclist is reportedly planning to admit to doping. Reporters, photographers, and TV crews took up positions across the street from Armstrong's opulent residence, which is surrounded by an eight foot high stone wall. The interview with Winfrey is scheduled to be taped at Armstrong's home on Monday and is to air on her OWN cable network on Thursday.
The announcement that Armstrong had agreed to an interview has sparked widespread speculation that he might finally confess to being a drug cheat after years of strenuous denials. According to USA Today, Armstrong plans to confess in the interview to doping throughout his career, but will not go into great detail about specific cases and events. It will be Armstrong's first interview since he was stripped in October of his seven Tour de France titles after the US Anti Doping Agency (USADA) said he helped orchestrate the most sophisticated doping program in sports history.
