    Lance Armstrong has been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned from cycling for life after saying he would no longer fight doping charges by the US Anti-Doping Agency

    Lance Armstrong has been stripped of his record seven Tour de France wins and handed a lifetime ban by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, but he remained defiant as supporters rallied around the American cyclist.

    Saying that "enough is enough," Armstrong issued a statement late on Thursday indicating that would not challenge USADA charges he had doped throughout his career, although he continued to deny he had ever used performance-enhancing drugs.

    While the USADA can remove Armstrong's titles, such a decision could ultimately rest with the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland, should the International Cycling Union challenge the USADA's ruling.

    But weary from years of denial, legal battles and skirmishes with former team-mates and anti-doping chiefs, Armstrong said it was a fight he no longer had the stomach for.

    He has been drug tested around 500 - 600 times in his career - More than any other Athlete

    Innocent until proven guilty. He has done nothing wrong.
