Lance Armstrong will admit to doping during his famed cycling career in an upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey, according to USA Today Sports.

The newspaper cites a source who says while Armstrong will confess, it's unlikely he'll go into details. The interview will tape Monday and air Thursday on OWN at 9 p.m.

According to Winfrey's website, this will be a "no-holds-barred interview" with Armstrong, who was stripped of seven Tour de France titles in October.

It'll be the first interview with Armstrong since his cycling career crumbled under the weight of a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report that detailed accusations of drug use by Armstrong and teammates on his U.S. Postal Service teams.

The New York Times reported last week that Armstrong was considering a confession to help restore his athletic career in triathlons and running events. He's been banned for life from competing in events governed by the World Anti-Doping Agency code.

Prosecutors said during one incident, Bradley pushed his wife against a wall and choked her after she requested he stop smoking marijuana in front of their two children. Other charges include Bradley hitting wife and threatening her with a baseball bat and knife. He's free pending a Jan. 24 arraignment.
