Melbourne: Martina Navratilova says only a "big ego" could have driven Lance Armstrong to lie about doping for so many years, and thinks he should never be allowed to compete in any sport again.
The 18-time Grand Slam singles champion said she didn't watch Armstrong's U.S. TV interview with Oprah Winfrey, during which he admitted to doping during his seven Tour de France wins, because she'd already made up her mind about him.
"There is no justification for what he did," Navratilova said. "Lying about it with such conviction for so many years, suing people and winning and just denying it so many times, I mean, it takes some serious ego to be able to do that. Clearly, he has a big ego.
