Paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius reportedly held a private memorial service for his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The 26-year-old has been charged with the premeditated murder of the 29-year-old model, who was shot dead through a bathroom door at the double amputee's home in Pretoria, South Africa.

"Oscar specifically requested the memorial service as he continues to grieve and remains in deep mourning for the loss of his partner Reeva," The Sun quotes a family spokesman as saying.

"Since it is such a sensitive issue, Oscar has asked for a private service with people who share his loss, including his family members who knew and loved Reeva as one of their own."

Reports have claimed that Steenkamp was pregnant at the time of her death.
