Oscar Pistorius has become a household name over the years, inspiring a generation of Paralympian's throughout the world. However, things have taken a very bad turn for the man dubbed Blade Runner, as he has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Oscar Pistorius has now used his family and management company to issue a statement, which strongly denies that he murdered Reeva Steenkamp. The statement also went on to say how Oscar would like to send his deepest sympathies to Reeva Steenkamp's family.
"The alleged murder is disputed in the strongest terms.
"He has made it very clear that he would like to send his deepest sympathies to the family of Reeva. He would also like to express his thanks through us today for all the messages of support he has received -- but as stated our thoughts and prayers today should be for Reeva and her family - regardless of the circumstances of this terrible, terrible tragedy.
"We will endeavour to issue other statements as matters develop but in these circumstances I am sure you appreciate it is very difficult to answer any more specific questions. Thank you very much for your attention."
Reeva Steenkamp will be remembered not only for her beauty but also for her brains, as she was a law graduate, as well as being a model. Reeva's body was found with four gunshots to the head and hand and the weapon used was found to be registered to Oscar Pistorius. He was arrested last night and spent the night in Pretoria prison.
R.I.P. Reeva Steenkamp.
