Lance Armstrong substance abuse scandal

Reuters: Tuesday 6th September, 2005; 14.25 Paris, France

Lance Armstrong's record setting seventh Tour de France victory, along
with his entire Tour de France legacy, may be tarnished by what could
turn out to be one of the greatest sports scandals of all time.

Armstrong is being quizzed by French police after three banned
substances were found in his South France hotel room while on vacation
after winning the 2005 Tour de France. The three substances found were
toothpaste, deodorant, and soap which have been banned by French
authorities for over 75 years.

Armstrong's girlfriend and American rocker Sheryl Crow is quoted as
saying "we use them every day in America, so we naturally thought they'd
be ok throughout Europe."

Along with these three banned substances, French authorities also found
several other interesting items that they have never seen before,
including a backbone and a testicle.
