PRETORIA (Reuters) - South African Paralympic gold medallist Oscar Pistorius arrived in court on Monday for sentencing after he was found guilty for the 2013 murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Pistorius, 29, known as "Blade Runner" for the carbon-fibre prosthetic blades he used to race, faces a minimum 15-year jail sentence and cannot appeal after the country's top court ruled in March that he had exhausted all his legal options.
