The cricket bat with which Paralympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius had used to break down the toilet door the night he shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, reportedly has the signature of South African legend Herschelle Gibbs displayed on it.


The police lifted the bat in court and showed where it hit the wooden, bullet-marked door, another key piece of evidence that was erected in the courtroom, following which Gibbs spotted his own signature on the bat.

According to Sport24, Gibbs promptly tweeted that he just saw his own signature on the bat used by the 'accused' in the 'Oscar' trial.

The report quoted a South African forensic analyst saying that a cricket bat was used to strike the toilet door at the athlete's home, in testimony focusing on the events of the night of Valentine's Day last year.

Pistorius insisted that he shot Steenkamp by mistake, fearing she was an intruder in the night, and then bashed the door open with a cricket bat to get to his girlfriend when he realised what had happened.
