Lance Armstrong may take a lie detector test to clear his name from doping allegations, his lawyer said on Sunday, even though he did not expect the result would change the public's opinion of the American cyclist.
Armstrong is set to lose his record seven Tour de France titles after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) published a 1,000 page report on Wednesday that said the retired American took part in and organised doping on his way to his unrivalled success on the Tour.
Armstrong has always denied he took banned substances during his glittering career but refused to challenge the USADA charges against him.
His lawyer Tim Herman told the BBC's Radio 5 Sportsweek on Sunday that the Texan cyclist may take a lie detector test to prove his innocence.
"We might do that, you never know," Herman said.
Asked why he Armstrong would not commit to taking the test, Herman said that he didn't think it would make a difference.
"He's moved on. His name is never going to be clear with anyone beyond what it is today," said Herman.
