(REUTERS) - Tour de France and Olympic time trial champion Bradley Wiggins said he had the "best feeling in the world" and no sympathy for Lance Armstrong after watching the disgraced American confess to years of doping.

Armstrong won seven straight Tour de France titles from 1999 but had them stripped when he was found guilty of doping in October last year before he spoke about his wrongdoings for the first time on American television last week.

Wiggins at first said he would not watch the interview but the Briton in the end tuned in - with his seven-year-old son for company.

"It's heart breaking for the sport and then the anger kicks in. It was difficult," Wiggins told reporters on Thursday at Team Sky's training camp in Mallorca ahead of his season opener on the Spanish island.
