    Lance Armstrong was left red faced after he tried to impress his new girlfriend, Kate Hudson, with a fancy meal in New York.

    The pair totted up to super exclusive restaurant Rao's but were unceremoniously turned away because they failed to make a reservation.

    The restaurant reportedly tried to explain that regulars are served first before new customers but did invite them to wait in the queue – a few months long!

    Unsurprisingly, that option didn't sit well with the champion cyclist, 36, who was spotted pointing at his own face and ranting 'Do you know who I am?'.

    Fantastic cyclist, brilliant athlete and charity campaigner. Still doesn't stop the bloke's true underlying persona from rising to the surface. Couldn't agree more, what a knob.;)

    former armstrong squeeze, singer sheryl crowe, opined that it would be better for the environment if everyone just used one sheet of bog roll per visit.

    nice ;)

    I thought that a bit odd when she first came out with that statement. I don't think one sheet would do in the morning after a few beers and a ruby the night before:ohmy: L.A. has always had a big ego, but maybe the people of the USA have started to forget him already?

    In most other restaurants he'd probably get away with it. I admire his bike achievements and struggle against cancer but personally I think there's something missing. Which I suppose there had to be to make him the way he is (on the bike). Mother fixation?

    The problem with asking "DO you know who I am?" and someone simply answers "Yes"

    There is no way out of that one...

    It's the Kate Hudson thing that gets me. I'm not hugely into cycle racing but I read his book and you can't fail to be inspired by it.

    But Kate Hudson? Really?? Pretty, I know but really???
