AUSTIN, Texas — Lance Armstrong has apologized to the staff at his Livestrong cancer foundation, a person with knowledge of the situation said Monday. He did so before heading to an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the discussion was private.

Armstrong addressed the staff Monday and said, “I’m sorry.” The person said the disgraced cyclist choked up and several employees cried during the session.

The person also said Armstrong apologized for letting the staff down and putting Livestrong at risk but he did not make a direct confession to the group about using banned drugs. He said he would try to restore the foundation’s reputation.
