Oscar faces dope tests

Johannesburg: Oscar Pistorius faces at least four random tests for drugs and alcohol in coming months to ensure he is complying with bail terms, an official said on Monday.

Pistorius checked in with a probation officer at Pretoria magistrate’s court on Monday in compliance with bail conditions laid down last week.

The double-amputee runner visited correctional officers in the capital, Pretoria, said spokesperson Lunice Johnston.

‘‘Oscar did present himself to the necessary authorities this morning,” Johnston said.

Pistorius, who was released on bail Friday, is staying at the home of his uncle, Arnold, in the affluent suburb of Waterkloof in Pretoria.
