South African judge Thokozile Masipa will decide Oscar Pistorius's sentence after several days of legal arguments and testimony.

Last month, she found the athlete guilty of culpable homicide after he fatally shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp through a bathroom door on Valentine's day 2013.

However the court cleared Pistorius of the more serious charge of premeditated murder, saying that the state had failed to give enough proof for such a charge.

Pistorius was also found guilty of one count of discharging a firearm in public, an offence relating to his firing of a gun in a restaurant.
