JOHANNESBURG - Eyewitness News understands murder accused Oscar Pistorius has completed his psychiatric evaluation and the report is expected to be ready by the end of Thursday.

A senior police official close to the investigation says the psychiatric report will be ready for collection on Friday.

The case adjourned in May for the athlete to be observed by a panel of experts after a defence witness testified that he suffered from a generalised anxiety disorder (GAD).

Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his Pretoria East home on Valentine's Day last year.

He argued it was an accident, while the state maintained he murdered her in a fit of rage.

The source says the Olympic and Paralympic athlete reported to Pretoria's Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital on every occasion the panel of experts required him to be there.

If Pistorius had failed to show up, a warrant for his arrest would have been issued.

This meant he did not report to the hospital every single weekday since 26 May, but only when he was needed to conduct tests.

In terms of the court order, hospital managers were given discretion on when Pistorius was to arrive and leave the facility.

The trial resumes in the North Gauteng High Court on Monday.
