The cross-examination of Oscar Pistorius has ended, following intensive questioning about the final moments of Reeva Steenkamp's life.

Mr Pistorius told chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel that he was "overcome with terror and despair", when he realised Ms Steenkamp may have been hit by shots he fired through his bathroom door.

He told the court he screamed out to her as he smashed his way into the toilet, then checked to see if she was breathing or if she had a pulse.

The athlete denies murder, insisting that he mistook his girlfriend for an intruder.
