Cycling: Lance Armstrong may use lie detector to prove innocence


Lance Armstrong's lawyer said the disgraced cyclist might take a lie detector test to prove he is innocent of doping allegations – but admitted few people would believe the results if they showed he was being truthful.

With Armstrong branded a "serial cheat" by the US Anti-Doping Agency, lawyer Tim Herman also said he would be keen for the 26 witnesses who testified against the Texan to the agency to take lie detector tests.

"A lie detector test properly administered, I'm a proponent of that, just personally. I wouldn't challenge the results of a lie detector test with good equipment, properly administered."
