Oscar Pistorius reported to the authorities on Monday morning, following his release on bail on Friday. The double amputee Olympic runner is currently staying with his uncle in Pretoria.

Pistorius was ordered to hand over his passports and any guns he owns. He is not allowed to return to his home in a gated community in Pretoria, as it is now a crime scene. He cannot leave Pretoria without his probation officer’s permission, and cannot consume any drugs or alcohol.

The runner’s longtime coach Ampie Louw said he wanted to get Pistorius back into training, if he were granted bail. However, Pistorius’ spokeswoman Lunice Johnston said she didn’t know of any immediate plans to return Pistorius to the track.

Pistorius’ next appearance is not until June 4. Accused of murder in the death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, Pistorius faces life imprisonment if convicted.
