AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency says it has been in contact with Lance Armstrong and is giving him more time to decide if he wants to cooperate with its investigators and tell more about what he knows of doping in cycling.

USADA investigated the cyclist's performance-enhancing drug use and banned him for life from sports. It has given him an extra two weeks to work out an interview with investigators under oath.

USADA chief executive Travis Tygart says in a statement his group has been "in communication" with Armstrong and his representatives and "we understand that he does want to be part of the solution and assist in the effort to clean up the sport of cycling."

The agency says Armstrong must cooperate with its cleanup effort if his ban is to be reduced.
