Hospital stay for Pistorius
SOUTH African athlete Oscar Pistorius had to be taken to hospital from prison, where he is serving a six- year sentence for murdering his girlfriend.
“He’s fine now,” Pistorius spokesman Johan van Wyk said yesterday.
Mr Van Wyk said South African media reports that the former track star and convicted murderer had a suspected heart attack in jail were untrue.
Pistorius, the double- amputee Olympic runner who is serving a six- year prison term for the 2013 murder of then girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, was taken to the hospital in Pretoria and stayed overnight for observation.
