Berlin: Jan Ullrich, Germany's only winner of the Tour de France, has for the first time admitted to doping with the help of Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes who ran a large-scale doping network.

"Yes, I had access to treatment from Fuentes," the 1997 winner of the Tour de France told German weekly Focus in its edition to appear on Monday.

"At that time, nearly everyone was using doping substances and I used nothing that the others were not using."
