The South African athlete shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp but he will be released after serving just a year behind bars.
At a parole hearing today the man known as 'Blade Runner' because of his Paralympic sprinting feats was told he would be released from prison next Tuesday.
The 28-year-old will remain under house arrest.
Pistorius was found guilty in September 2014 of a lesser charge of manslaughter for shooting Steenkamp through a toilet door in his home in 2013.
