Oscar Pistorius' brother's Twitter account was hacked into and a tweet was sent out which read "thank-you to every person that has prayed for both families", a family spokeswoman said.
It is most unfortunate that during this sensitive time, someone would choose to hack into Oscar Pistorius' older brother's Twitter handle.
Carl Pistorius did not tweet this afternoon, out of respect to Oscar and Reeva. We are busy cancelling all the social media sites for both Oscar's brother and his sister.
The tweet which was posted earlier has now been deleted.
