Cycling: Armstrong Pau-faced.

TOUR de France leader Lance Armstrong, cleared of doping allegations by the International Cycling Union in Pau yesterday, angrily claimed he is being persecuted by "vulture journalists".

Traces of a banned corticoid showed up in Armstrong's urine, but he used a cream to cure an allergy and had a medical prescription for it.
