In an exclusive interview, doctor Michele Ferrari tells Al Jazeera’s Lee Wellings he did not dope shamed cyclist Lance Armstrong. 

Ferrari was named 480 times in the US Anti-Doping Agency’s devastating report on the Armstrong case earlier this year, and was handed a lifetime ban by the agency.

However, with Lance Armstrong never failing a single doping test, the doctor plans to take legal action.
