I thought he was just a genetic freak for years but when you learn of his association with doctors convicted of doping and find there's a list of former team-mates ready to speak out against him it's difficult to keep believing in him. He's not an easy man to like and this latest twist in the tale makes you wonder if one day he might actually own up to cheating himself
