15 June 2016 - Oscar Pistorius removes his prosthetics in court on Day 3 of his sentencing hearing to demonstrate his capabilities on his stumps, while Advocate Barry Roux argues his case.
Defence attorney Barry Roux pointed to Pistorius, saying that this is the person being sentenced.
A sobbing Pistorius walked hesitantly on his stumps.
Wearing shorts, the double-amputee removed his prosthetic limbs at the request of Roux.
The Paralympic athlete held onto wooden benches for support as he hobbled in front of the judge, and appeared in distress as a cushion was provided for him to rest on.
On the night that Reeva Steenkamp was killed, Pistorius was on his stumps.
Roux was wrapping up his closing arguments.
Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013.
