If you were worried that The Last Dance coming to a conclusion also meant the end of quality sport documentaries on Sunday nights, then we have some good news. ESPN will fill the slot left open by Michael, with another one of the nation’s most famous and controversial sports stars – Lance.
Yep, the cycling world’s antihero Lance Armstrong is back on our screens in a two-part documentary that was lauded at the Sundance Film Festival and is set to be jam-packed with revealing interviews and gobsmacking revelations. Armstrong’s full hero-to-zero story will be laid out for all to witness. But will it change your mind about the man stripped of seven consecutive Tour de France titles following allegations of doping?
Don’t forget, this is a competitor who was hero to so many – his biggest glories came only after overcoming testicular cancer. And as ever with these huge media scandals, there’s always more than one side to every story. This is the chance to see what Lance thinks of it all now looking back, as well as the views of friends, family, peers and journalists.
So if you’re missing sport (and German Bundesliga football isn’t quite scratching that itch), then settle down for the story of history’s most (in)famous cycling stars. We’ll explain how to watch Lance, whether you’re planning to tune in live or catch-up afterwards.
