Another day brings another nugget of bad news for Lance Armstrong.

The Associated Press is reporting that the International Olympic Committee sent a letter to Armstrong on Wednesday night asking him to return the bronze medal he won at the 2000 Olympics, citing his involvement in doping. IOC officials had discussed in December the idea of revoking the medal but decided to wait until he had officially been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and wiped of all results since 1998.

A televised interview between Armstrong and Oprah Winfrey is set to air tonight, in which Armstrong reportedly discusses and admits to some degree his use of performance enhancing drugs.
