“Back in Austin and just layin’ around,” said Armstrong to accompany the picture of him lying on a sofa below the jerseys a month after the US doping authorities stripped him of his seven titles and wiped his career record.
By mid-Sunday more than 100,000 subscribers to the social media site had seen the picture - but opinions posted to Twitter were diverse with some tweeters blasting the Texan as a cheat while others still maintain their faith in the cancer survivor.
On October 23, Armstrong removed from his Twitter biography a line referring to his seven Tour crowns after the US Anti-Doping Agency scrapped his career race record back to 1998 on publication of a lengthy report into doping allegations.
