In July 1993 Lance Armstrong made his Tour de France debut. After surviving life-threatening cancer, Armstrong went on to win the Tour de France and David Walsh was one of the few journalists who openly questioned the authenticity of Armstrong’s victory. Walsh devoted most of the next decade to investigating Armstrong and in the end the truth came out - Armstrong cheated in all seven of his Tour de France victories and he was stripped of his titles and banned for life from competing in any sport. Walsh tells the story of his pursuit of Armstrong in the best-selling book Seven Deadly Sins which has since been adapted to the big screen.
