Oprah Winfrey tweeted Lance Armstrong was "ready" for his "no holds barred" interview on Monday.

Hours before the interview, Armstrong apologized to his Livestrong staff.
Rae Bazzarre, director of communications for Livestrong, said the disgraced cyclist met with workers of the cancer charity, which he founded, in person at their office in Austin, Texas.
"Lance came to the Livestrong Foundation's headquarters today for a private conversation with our staff and offered a sincere and heartfelt apology for the stress they've endured because of him and urged them to keep up their great work fighting for people affected by cancer."
Could this be a sign he's ready to confess to doping? While the pair talked on Monday, the interview isn’t set to air until Thursday.

Some are already speculating that Armstrong will come clean about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.
He was stripped of his seven Tour de France wins after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said it had proof he was involved in “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”
