PARIS, France --

Lance Armstrong's record setting seventh Tour de France victory, along with his entire Tour de France legacy, may be tarnished by what could turn out to be one of the greatest sports scandals of all time. Armstrong is being quizzed by French police after three banned substances were found in his South of France hotel room, while on vacation after winning the 2005 Tour de France.

The three substances found were toothpaste, deodorant and soap which have been banned by French authorities for over 75 years.

Armstrong's girlfriend, American rocker, Sheryl Crowe, is quoted as saying "We use them every day in America, so we naturally thought they'd be OK throughout Europe."

Along with these three banned substances, French authorities also physically searched Armstrong and found several other interesting items that they had never seen before, including a backbone and a testicle.
