    There is something irresistible about watching a man fall down, as in the case of Lance Armstrong. It’s like a car crash: you can’t peel your eyes away from the pile-up. For actual inspiration, however, it’s hard to top the 2019 documentary titled “Armstrong” which tells the life story of NEIL Armstrong, hero to the world for his first steps on the moon.
