Oscar Pistorius: The reaction - in 45 secs

South African athlete Oscar Pistorius stared ahead impassively as he was sentenced to five years in prison for the killing of his girlfriend last year.

Judge Thokozile Masipa cleared him of murder last month, saying the state had failed to prove he intended to kill the model Reeva Steenkamp.

But he was found guilty of culpable homicide - a charge equivalent to manslaughter - and also given a three-year suspended sentence on a firearms charge.

Watch the reaction from the courtroom as the sentence was passed.
