US University rescinds Armstrong's degree



An American university has stripped disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong of an honourary degree after a unanimous vote by the school's trustees.

Tufts University, located in a suburb just outside Boston, Massachusetts, rescinded the doctor of humane letters bestowed on the former American icon six years ago.

The university said on Wednesday that while respecting Armstrong's cancer-fighting efforts, the board concluded his "actions as an athlete are inconsistent with the values of the university."

Armstrong had his seven Tour de France titles taken away after the United States Anti-doping Agency disclosed evidence that he used performance-enhancing drugs.
