A psychiatrist who evaluated Oscar Pistorius has been hospitalised, his defence team has confirmed to ITV News. Prosecutors say they are unsure whether the illness will cause a delay to the Olympian's murder trial, which has lasted almost four months.
Pistorius is due to return to court on Monday following a 30 day psychiatric assessment. Although his examination is complete, written reports by a panel of specialists must now be presented to the court.
Defence and prosecution sources say they hope the trial will resume without delay.
Oscar Pistorius' defence will open their case on Friday and the Paralympic and Olympic athlete is expected to testify in the morning.
Oscar Pistorius was "probably not wearing his prosthetic legs" when he fatally shot his girlfriend, a forensic analyst told his trial.
Reporters discuss their views on the evidence while trays of coffee are passed along. At times it feels more like a cinema than a courtroom.
