Wada unaware of possible Lance admission

World Anti-Doping Agency director general David Howman says his organisation has had no approach from cyclist Lance Armstrong that would indicate he is about to admit using performance-enhancing drugs.

But Howman, who is holidaying in his native New Zealand, told the Sunday Star-Times newspaper he had an "open line" should Armstrong wish to make contact.

The New York Times on Friday quoted anonymous sources as saying Armstrong, who has strongly denied the doping charges that led to him being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, is considering admitting drug use.

The Times said "according to several people with direct knowledge of the situation" Armstrong might seek a meeting with Howman. But Howman told the Star-Times "Wada hasn't, and I haven't, had any approach from Armstrong or his legal team."
