Cycling: Lance Armstrong deletes Twitter reference to seven Tour de France titles
Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong continues to remain silent despite officially being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles by the International Cycling Union (UCI).
Yet there are signs the American accepts the decision after he updated his Twitter profile to reflect the latest developments in his doping scandal.
The UCI confirmed yesterday that they would ratify the United States Anti-Doping Agency's decision to ban the Texan for life and remove all his titles since August 2008, including the seven Tour de France titles he won between 1999 and 2005.
Armstong has updated his Twitter page to reflect the decision with the words "7-time Tour de France champion" being removed from his profile.
The account, which is followed by 3.38m people, now states: "Raising my 5 kids. Fighting Cancer. Swim, bike, run and golf whenever I can."
