Pretoria police spokesperson Katlego Mogale told the media that she could not confirm the man's identity until he appears in court.


She added that a 9mm pistol was recovered from the scene and a case of murder is being investigated.


Officers are still busy with preliminary investigations on the scene, and statements are being taken from neighbours on the luxury estate.

Mr Pistorius’ agent Peet van Zyl is he heading to Pretoria to speak to his client.


'I hope I can have access to him at the police station,' he said.


'Oscar is a humble person and a lovely guy – I’m sure what’s happened has been a terrible mistake but I really don’t have the details at the moment.'


Mr Pistorious, 26, is widely known as the Blade Runner, he has also been dubbed 'the fastest man on no legs'.

The Johannesburg-born athlete, who was born without fibulas in his legs and had the limbs amputated below the knee when he was 11 months old, had to win a legal battle over his blades with the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) in 2008 for the right to compete in able-bodied competition.

He was the first double amputee to run in the Olympics and reached the 400 semi-finals in London 2012.

The body of the woman has been removed from his house and the athlete is being questioned.

The track star lives on a large farm north-east of Johannesburg in the Pretoria region of South Africa, which is heavily guarded.

In an interview with the Mail before London 2012 it was revealed he slept with a pistol next to his bed and kept a machine gun by a window.

Miss Steenkamp, a law graduate from Port Elizabeth, gave an interview to the Sunday Times in South Africa last week where she described her boyfriend as 'an impeccable man who always her best interests at heart'.

On her Facebook and Twitter pages, she describes herself as an 'SA Model, FHM Cover Girl, Tropika Island of Treasure Celeb Contestant, Law Graduate, Ambassador'

Sarit Tomlinson, Steenkamp’s publicist, told Sky News: ‘She was the sweetest human being and an absolute angel on earth. She was the kindest, most unbelievable girl.


‘They had been together for a couple of months and it had been a healthy, fabulous relationship. At the moment it’s shocking. No-one knows what’s happened.


‘She was a rising star. There was so much in the pipeline for her: she was just about to explode into the media.


‘She was a very talented, very bright young girl. It’s too shocking for words. We’ll miss her so much, too much. Our condolences go to her family.’

The blade-runner has done more than any other athlete to put the Paralympics on the global map since he first won medals aged 17 in the Athens Games of 2004.

He was expected to take home a haul of paralympic golds at London 2012 but failed to deliver.

His first final was in the 200m, where he finished a shock second to Oliveira, and then accused rivals, including his young conqueror, of running on blades that were too long.


Then Pistorius had to settle for fourth place in the 100m individual event when the glory – and the went to Britain’s new track icon, Jonnie Peacock.


But this defeat and the outburst were followed by a measure of redemption when Pistorius anchored his country’s 4 x 100m relay gold in a world record time.

South Africa has some of the world's highest rates of violent crime and some home-owners carry weapons to defend themselves against intruders.

An average of nearly 50 people are murdered there each day, while there are also high levels of assault, rape, robbery and carjackings.


According to United Nations research, South Africa has one of the highest firearm-related homicide rates in the world, second only to Colombia at the time.


The rate, which was measured per 100,000 people, put the country's score four times higher than the US.


According to statistics 12.7 in every 100 people in South Africa own a gun and it is estimated there are almost six million civilian firearms.


The BBC reported that in 2008/09 there were 662 murders in the UK, while in South Africa there were 18,148.


On top of this there are also an alleged 18,000 attempted murders each year.

Just three days ago, Pistorius tweeted about his excitement regarding his first race of 2013, accompanied by a photograph of him in action.

He said: '1 month till my first race of 2013.. Can't wait to burn it up!'


South African journalist Kalay Maistry told Sky News: 'It is alleged that he thought his girlfriend, who’d come in to try to surprise him for Valentine's Day, was an intruder. It’s alleged that he shot her in the arm and head.


'I think what this actually highlights is the level of fear ordinary South Africans have.


'This is a man who has gone to bed, it’s an innocent surprise from a girlfriend … and the moment he thinks someone is trying to break in he grabs his gun.


'This has come as a complete surprise for a man who’s considered a national hero.'

On Pistorius's website, a quote from Lord Coe from before London 2012 describes him as a 'real inspiration to people around the world', and a spokesman from sports giant Nike describes time with Pistorius as 'some of the most inspirational time we've ever spent around an athlete'.

Lord Coe said: 'Oscar is an extraordinary athlete who has made a significant impact in international sport.


'It will be fantastic to see him compete in London this summer - spectators can expect a real treat!


'He's been a real inspiration to people around the world so we were thrilled when he decided to join our International Inspiration programme as an ambassador, helping us to inspire young people worldwide.'


Arturo Nunez, Nike emerging markets marketing director, said: 'Nike routinely works with the best athletes in the world, and Oscar Pistorius stands out on that list.


'Many world-class athletes visit Nike and amaze our community, but the two weeks that Oscar spent on campus last summer went down as some of the most inspirational time we've ever spent around an athlete.'
