Armstrong refuses to confirm Hudson relationship

Armstrong refuses to confirm Hudson relationship

Cycling champion Lance Armstrong is still refusing to publicly acknowledge his romance with actress Kate Hudson after he was quizzed about the relationship during a US TV interview on yesterday.

The pair has been romantically linked since they were spotted kissing and cuddling during a party at the Cannes International Film Festival in France in May - but neither star has spoken out about their romance to date.

When the famous athlete was put on the spot on chat show The View, he politely declined to answer the four female hosts' inquiries as to his single status.

Armstrong says: "Number one, I know you have to ask that question. And it's my right not to answer it. Number two, I think when you're happy about something or proud about something, I think it's natural in human nature to talk about it.

"But I'm not going to answer it. Next question."

Hudson appeared on the show just last week, giggling coyly when posed the same question before responding: "Ask him."
