Interviewed by Matt Lauer on the Today program, America's top morning chat show, Lance Armstrong said that despite the news about Hamilton's suspension being hard to take, he has faith in the medical processes used to fight doping in cycling, and found the decision handed down by the American Arbitration Association/North American Court of Arbitration for Sport (AAA/CAS) as bittersweet.

"I have faith in the process [of medical control]... and I know Tyler," Armstrong said. "And in my heart, I find it very hard to believe that he did [blood doping], but as I said, there is a process and at the same time, it's a little bittersweet because my long-time team-mate, a Russian, Ekimov [lost to Hamilton in Athens], so it's unfortunate."
