Journalists may be waiting in vain outside the Brooklyn Police Station for Oscar Pistorius to arrive.

On Friday, it was reported that his bail conditions included that he would report to the police station between 7am and 1pm from Mondays to Fridays.

However, it has since emerged that this was a condition agreed to by the prosecution and the defence but was not included in the final order made by Magistrate Desmond Nair.

Scores of journalists gathered outside the police station from around 6am on Monday, anticipating the arrival of Pistorius.

National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Medupe Simasiku was not immediately available for comment.

The 2012 Paralympics 400m gold medallist has spent his first weekend at home, after being held for eight days at the Brooklyn Police Station.

He is charged with murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, who was shot at his home in Pretoria on February 14.

In an affidavit submitted as part of his application for bail, Pistorius said he had thought there was an intruder in his house when he fired the shots.

His next court appearance is on June 4.
