Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has entered a psychiatric hospital in South Africa’s capital, Pretoria, for the start of his mental evaluation.
The judge at his murder trial has ordered that his mental state be assessed by health experts as an outpatient for up to 30 days.
It comes after a defence witness said the double amputee was suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder (Gad).
Mr Pistorius denies intentionally killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
The Olympic and Paralympic track star says he accidentally shot her through the toilet door on Valentine’s Day last year in a state of panic, mistaking the 29-year-old model and law graduate for an intruder.
Mr Pistorius arrived before 09:00 local time (07:00 GMT) at Weskoppies psychiatric hospital, where he will be assessed for seven hours.
He will have to do this every weekday for the next month; the court’s proceedings are not set to resume until 30 June. BBC
