Former Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius, jailed for 13 years back in 2015 for the shooting death of this then-girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, has been conducting Bible study and prayer groups in prison.
The former Paralympian, nicknamed ‘Blade Runner’ in his running days, heads the groups once or twice a week, and it is reported he has even welcomed the prison’s most feared criminals to worship alongside him.
