Politics UK will be replaced today by a previous edition of The Interview where Owen Bennett-Jones spoke to the athlete Oscar Pistorius.

Oscar needed to have both legs amputated below the knee when he was 11 months old but he has now grown up into a world-class runner.

He runs on carbon fibre blades earning him the nickname "Bladerunner".

He talks to Owen Bennett Jones about whether he should be allowed to compete with able-bodied athletes and why he has a fear of ballet.
