Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong returned to the Tour de France race on Thursday, three years after he was stripped of his wins for doping.

The shamed sportsman once held seven consecutive Tour de France titles between 1999 and 2005, but in 2012 he was stripped off all his wins and banned from competing in all activities which have drug testing after he admitted cheating during the races.

Despite his spectacular fall from grace in the cycling world, Armstrong has returned to the site of the gruelling contest to ride two stages in two days for charity.
