Oscar Pistorius was today found guilty of culpable homicide relating to the shooting and killing of his then-girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Yesterday Judge Thokozile Masipa delivered day one of her verdict, in which she cleared the multiple Paralympic champion of murdering Steenkamp.

In a packed Pretoria high court Judge Masipa asked Pistorius to stand as his family, Steenkamp's family, numerous lawyers and indeed the whole world watched. Below are pictures gathered on the day an iconic sportsman learnt his fate.
