Oscar Pistorius's uncle, Arnold, has said that the Olympic and Paralympic star is "numb with shock and grief" after the death of Reeva Steenkamp.

Standing with the athlete's sister Aimee, he repeated the family's opposition to the prosecution's pursuit of a "premeditated murder" charge and said Ms Steenkamp was someone the family had "got to know well and care for deeply over the last few months".
