1 hour, 56 minutes ago


PARIS (AP)?France?s anti-doping agency has sent a report on Lance Armstrong?s recent test to international sports authorities.

The report from March 17 was forwarded to cycling?s governing body and the World Anti-Doping Agency.

The French agency said it will decide to investigate once it hears from the cycling body. The international cycling group, however, told The Associated Press on Monday it doesn?t have jurisdiction in this matter.

Armstrong was tested in southern France, where he was training as part of his comeback in a bid to win an eighth Tour de France.

He was was asked to provide a hair sample. Testing of hair is allowed under French law but is not recognized by WADA or by the world cycling group.
