The doping case involving Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong — the subject of a federal grand jury in Los Angeles — is heating up.

A former teammate of Armstrong’s Tyler Hamilton told 60 Minutes that the international cycling authorities helped the legendary Armstrong cover up a positive test for the banned drug EPO in 2001.

Hamilton, who has testified before the grand jury, also told 60 Minutes that he saw Armstrong take banned drug and that he finally told his own family about the illegalities that had been going on.

“Well, I just told my family for the first time four days ago about all this. It was brutal. Was the first time, really, I confided in them and then told them the whole story, you know, starting from the first time I doped till to up through the end,” Hamilton told 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley.
