The Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins has described watching Lance Armstrong confess to doping with a mixture of emotions including “anger and sadness.”

Wiggins said he had found the opening section of the interview Armstrong gave to Oprah Winfrey in which the American admitted using EPO and blood doping, “difficult to watch, watching him cave in after lying so convincingly. It’s heartbreaking for the sport, but then the anger kicks in ... all the natural things most people had when they were watching it. In the end I felt he deserved everything he gets. I felt no sympathy for him whatsoever.’
