Successful sports stars often become role models. For years, cyclist Armstrong was a hero to millions of fans. His remarkable story of recovery from life-threatening cancer to become a seven-time Tour de France champion was inspirational, and his ‘Livestrong’ wristbands became a popular accessory around the world.
