Lance speaks out about shock split

Cyclist Lance Armstrong, who split with fiancée Sheryl Crow in the weekend, has spoken out about their relationship. The seven-time Tour De France star, who famously overcame testicular cancer, says, “obviously, this week was a rough week for us, but that doesn’t change the fact that I think Sheryl is an unbelievable lady. She’s one of the smartest, wisest, most gifted people I’ve ever met and a person that I can honestly say has shown me a love that I never knew. It’s only fair that I say that and not run from the situation. I’m torn that it didn’t work out but that doesn’t matter. Fans of mine are fans of hers and hopefully fans of hers are fans of mine. She’s a great lady and it deserves to be that way.” [9 February 2006]
