Lance Armstrong is heading to TV to finally admit that he used performance enhancing drugs during his pro cycling career.

Armstrong will tape the interview on Monday at his home in Austin, Texas, a source told USA Today, and it will air on Thursday.

As has been reporting, Armstrong has long denied doping, even as the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency issued a scathing report chronicling his years of drug use and his strong arm tactics to get others on his U.S. Postal Service team to do the same.

He's been stripped of his seven Tour de France titled, is banned from competing in any sport covered by the USADA, has lost all his sponsors, and has resigned from Livestrong, the charity he founded to help fight cancer.

His admission is reportedly a last ditch effort to be allowed to compete in non-cycling sports in the future.
