Substance at Pistorius's house a muscle remedy: Publicist
JOHANNESBURG (AFP) - A substance found in star athlete Oscar Pistorius's home during a search by police probing the killing of his girlfriend is a herbal remedy for muscle recovery, his publicist said on Wednesday.
The remedy which can be bought online, including on Amazon.com, is marketed as a homeopathy remedy used for temporary muscle relief and symptoms associated with male sexual weakness.
"We have had confirmation from Oscar's legal team that the herbal remedy that he used was called Testis Compositum - which is used to aid muscle recovery," his spokesman Janine Hills told AFP.
The prosecution claimed during the Olympian medallist's bail hearing last week that police had found two boxes of "testosterone" and needles, but the defence had countered that it was a legal herbal remedy.
