THE Sunday Times said it would vigorously pursue a £1million (€1.1 million) legal action against Lance Armstrong after the American cyclist admitted using banned drugs.
"The Sunday Times believes that our case for recovering the £1 million he obtained from us by fraud is now even stronger. We will be pursuing that case vigorously."
The newspaper, part of Rupert Murdoch's media business, also wants to recover interest and legal costs incurred in the case.
Armstrong confessed to doping during his seven Tour de France wins in an interview with Oprah Winfrey broadcast late on Thursday.
