Banned cyclist Lance Armstrong has lost his bid to block a $ 100m (£79m) lawsuit by the US government.

The suit alleges that Armstrong defrauded the government by cheating while riding for the publicly funded US Postal Service team.

It was filed by Armstrong’s former team-mate Floyd Landis before being joined by the government in 2013.
