NEW: Armstrong says he told his son: "Don't defend me anymore"
He says he deserves punishment, but not the "death penalty"
Part two of Armstrong's interview with Oprah Winfrey aired Friday night
“If you’re asking me do I want to compete again, the answer is hell yes. I’m a competitor,” Armstrong said during the second part of a two-part interview, which aired Friday on Winfrey’s OWN channel and online.
“I can’t lie to you. I’d love the opportunity to be able to compete, but that isn’t the reason that I’m doing this. Frankly, this may not be the most popular answer, but I think I deserve it,” he said.
In part one of the interview, which aired Thursday, Armstrong admitted, unequivocally and for the first time, that he used performance-enhancing drugs on the way to seven Tour de France wins.
