LANCE’S CASH INJECTION
DISGRACED cycling star Lance Armstrong has revealed an early investment in taxi app Uber saved his family from financial ruin.
The father of five, who was exposed as a drugs cheat and stripped of his Tour de France titles, said he invested about $135,000 in the company in 2009 through a venture capital fund.
At the time, Uber was valued at $5 million, but it is now thought to be worth as much as $165 billion.
Armstrong, 47, said the cash he made from Uber kept him on his feet after his doping scandal.
