Olympian Oscar Pistorius has been treated for injuries at a private hospital after claiming he fell out of bed in his cell at a South Africa prison where he is serving a six-year sentence for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Singabakho Nxumalo, a spokesman for the correctional services department, did not provide any detail of the injuries, citing medical privacy concerns but said Pistorius told officials he suffered the injuries after falling out of bed.
Mr Nxumalo said the former track star was taken back to his Pretoria prison cell on Saturday, and that an investigation is under way.
Last month, South African prosecutors said they would appeal Pistorius' six-year jail sentence, saying it was too lenient.
Pistorius fatally shot Steenkamp in his home on Valentine's Day 2013.
