LOS ANGELES–Disgraced US cycling star Lance Armstrong said in an interview broadcast Thursday that he was “sorry” for taking performance-enhancing drugs during his career and that it was a mistake.

“I made my decisions. They’re my mistake. And I’m sitting here today to acknowledge that and to say I’m sorry for that,” the seven-time Tour de France winner said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. “The culture was what it was.”
