Millar ponders UCI president role

British cyclist David Millar says it is in the "back of my mind" to become the president of the International Cycling Union (UCI) in the future to help clean up the sport.

The UCI has been criticised by many in the wake of the Lance Armstrong drug scandal, in which the seven-time Tour de France winner has been accused of being "a serial drugs cheat" by the US Anti-Doping Agency.

Speaking to Mark Chapman and The Times' Jeremy Whittle on a BBC Radio 5 liveSport special, Millar - who himself had a two-year doping ban from cycling - says he is "not a politician" but believes he "could make a difference" if he sought the top position at the UCI.
