Cape Town - Cycling legend Lance Armstrong has added his name to the growing list of complaints at the sound of vuvuzelas being trumpeted at Soccer World Cup stadiums.

Armstrong, currently partaking in the Tour de Suisse, wrote on his social networking Twitter page on Saturday evening: Watching USA-England. Go USA!!! Btw, what is that horn going off in the stadium?

Later, Armstrong posted the following tweet: No offense to the vuvuzela posse but, man, it's a bit much.

Armstrong joins among others Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo in adding his voice to the unhappiness over the noise emitted from the metre-long plastic vuvuzelas that have been a hit with fans at stadiums across South Africa.

Both Armstrong and Ronaldo - plus a number of spectators - will no doubt be glad to read that World Cup organisers have not ruled out banning the instrument.
