The International Olympic Committee will ask Lance Armstrong to return the bronze medal he won at the 2000 Sydney Olympics if he admits to doping, reports USA TODAY's Kelly Whiteside.

Armstrong reportedly admitted that in an interview with Oprah that will air on Thursday and Friday night.

"If Armstrong admits he cheated then we will be asking for the medal back, just as we would with any athlete," IOC director of communications Mark Adams emailed USA TODAY.

The 2000 Olympics came near the beginning of Armstrong's dominant run at the Tour de France, where he won seven consecutive titles from 1999 to 2005. He has since been stripped of each of those victories.
