Somerset West: Oscar Pistorius has walked into a South African police station to report for community service, the first public sighting of the double-amputee athlete since he was released from jail in secret last month and moved to house arrest.

Pistorius was wearing a black baseball cap and sunglasses when he arrived this morning at the Garsfontein police station in the South African capital, Pretoria.

In a video clip published by South African media, a woman says "Hi Oscar, how are you?" as Pistorius walks past a small group of journalists outside the station. Pistorius does not reply.

Pistorius is serving a five-year sentence for shooting to death girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.

He was released from jail October 19 to serve the remaining four years of the sentence under house arrest.
