Oscar Pistorius has walked into a police station to report for community service, the first public sighting of the 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 at 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.

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

The double-amputee athlete was released from jail on October 19 to serve the remaining four years of the sentence under house arrest.
