Ben Johnson feels sorry for Lance Armstrong
Edinburgh: Twenty-five years after stripped of his 1988 gold medal at the Seoul Olympics, Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson has said he feels sorry for fellow disgraced sportsman Lance Armstrong.
In an interview with `insidethegames,` Johnson, whose world record were canceled following a positive test in 1988, has jumped to the defence of Armstrong.
Armstrong has been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after he admitted to doping.

According to the Scotsman, Johnson, 51, will return to Seoul Olympic Stadium on Tuesday to mark the 25th anniversary of his 100m victory.
He has been fronting an anti-doping campaign - Choose The Right Track - which has taken him to the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia and Japan.
