Oscar Pistorius was pictured on the running track for the first time since the death of Reeva Steenkamp, as he deals with his grief.

Pistorius, who denies the charge of murdering his model girlfriend Ms Steenkamp and is currently awaiting trial, was photographed by a member of a children's hockey team, with the picture appearing in South African newspaper Beeld in Pretoria.

It shows the three-time 2012 Paralympic gold medal winner wearing his blades and jogging around the track at the University of Pretoria.

However, his agent Peet van Zyl denied Pistorius has returned to training following the relaxation of his bail conditions, which now allow him to travel abroad in order to continue his athletics career, although he confirmed Pistorius could resume soon.

"He was just having a jog around his track on his own accord. He wasn't back at training," Van Zyl told Press Association Sport.

"That picture was taken by a school kid on March 24. Myself, Oscar and his coach had a meeting on Tuesday to discuss him getting him back to training.

"Based on that he told us he would like to get back in training and we can now look at formulating his training schedule.

"He is finding it very difficult and he is still coming to terms with the sad loss of Reeva. That is why it will be better for him to be back at training. It will be great to get him back to the track and get some routine. That's why we are taking it day by day."
