Oscar Pistorius will not return to any competitions before the start of his hearing over the murder of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp next month.

Oscar Pistorius's agent Peet van Zyl has revealed that the double amputee will not return to any competitions before next month's hearing regarding the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The Paralympic champion is due to return to court in Pretoria, South Africa on a murder charge following the fatal shooting of Steenkamp at his home on Valentine's Day.

"Athletics at this point is furthest from his mind," Van Zyl told BBC Radio Five Live.

There had been suggestions that Pistorius, who has returned to light training, could have taken part in the Paralympic Athletic World Championships, which begin on Saturday in Lyon.
