Lance Armstrong has had something of a rough week.
On Wednesday morning he announced that he would be stepping down from his post as chairman of Livestrong – a charity he started back in 1997.

After word of him stepping down from Livestrong hit the news, Nike released a statement announcing that they were terminating their relationship with Armstrong. Yes, the company that willingly works with convicted dog fighter Michael Vick has decided that Armstrong’s shadiness has reached the point of no return.
