Lance Armstrong and Filippo Simeoni have both withdrawn defamation charges against each other, ending a three year-old affair. The case wound up in a court in Latina, Italy on Thursday. It started in April 2003, when Simeoni sued Armstrong for defamation over the American's remarks in Le Monde in relation to Simeoni's role in the Dr Ferrari trial. Armstrong subsequently launched a counter-suit against Simeoni.
Another case that involved the pair in an incident during the 2004 Tour de France was closed earlier this year.
