Lance Armstrong is now facing legal action from the United States Government as part of the 'qui tam' suit, which was reportedly started by Floyd Landis against Armstrong and those involved with the US Postal Team.

The US Department Of Justice has filed papers as part of a case, under the federal False Claims Act which accuses 'the team of defrauding the government by engaging in doping while under sponsorship of the Postal Service, actions which were contrary to the terms of the sponsorship agreement'.

If Armstrong and those involved are found guilty they could face having to pay out up to $60m.
