A South African court has more than doubled Oscar Pistorius's murder sentence after finding the original ruling 'shockingly lenient'.
The South African gold-medal winning Paralympian will serve 13 years and five months.
The previous sentence was for six years.
Pistorius was convicted of the 2013 murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
