France's anti-doping agency says it will not seek sanctions against cyclist Lance Armstrong over a dispute with a drug tester.
The AFLD agency said in a statement Friday that it "decided to take into consideration the athlete's written explanations" and will not open disciplinary procedures.
The anti-doping agency has said the American cyclist did not fully cooperate with a drug tester who showed up at Armstrong's home in France to collect blood, urine and hair samples on March 17.
The seven-time Tour de France winner has said he wasn't sure of the identity of the drug tester and did not try to evade or delay testing.
The AFLD said in its statement that the blood and urine tests were clean, but that it did not test the hair samples.
