South Africa’s superstar sprinter Oscar “Blade Runner” Pistorius arrived in court on Friday to face charges that he murdered his model girlfriend at his luxury home on Valentine’s Day.

Two police vehicles arrived at the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court, with the amputee athlete sitting in the back of one, his head covered in a jacket. He was expected to apply for bail during the hearing but police have said they would oppose it.
