A close friend of Oscar Pistorius said the Paralympian is "on the verge of suicide" as he is forced to sell off his belongings to fight a charge of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Mike Azzie, who Pistorius refers to as Uncle Mike, said the athlete was a "broken man" after he was tasked with selling his racehorses to raise money to pay for spiralling legal fees.
Speaking in a BBC3 documentary, Oscar Pistorius: What Really Happened?, Mr Azzie said: "He just always seems to mention Reeva and to ask us to pray for her and her family.
"But most of all, you've got to understand that we are there for him and we will always be his friend. He has no confidence in his tone of voice and he is just a man that is almost like someone that is walking around in circles and doesn't know where he is going.
"I would say that, just speaking to him, that he is a broken man and that I would go as far to say that he would be on the verge of suicide. It really worries me."
