Following a summer which saw him compete on the Olympic track eleven times across the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius took part in his first ever US television chat show when he was a guest on the NBC ‘Tonight With Jay Leno’ show.

Fresh off the back of partnering with Ryder Cup hero and vice-captain Paul McGinley at the Dunhill Links golf Championships in Scotland, Oscar appeared alongside US actor Tyler Perry and the music band Plain White T’s as he reflected on a summer which saw him win two Paralympic gold and a Paralympic silver medal, break three world records and make an Olympic final.

The show was broadcast at 23:35 ET on NBC on Tuesday 09 October and is available at the following links below, including to viewers outside of the US.

Pistorius will be remaining in the US for the rest of the week, where his next appearance will be on the ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ show on CNN on Friday 12 October, followed by the ‘Larry King Now’ show on HULU.com, to be broadcast at a later date.
