The lead lawyer prosecuting Oscar Pistorius on murder charges on Friday told a bail hearing the sprinter knows a long spell in jail is "almost guaranteed" and is a flight risk.

"He hasn't said so, but he must think that conviction is likely," said lead prosecutor Gerrie Nel. "He must realise that a long term of imprisonment is almost guaranteed."
