Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius is reportedly appealing against his bail conditions to have them changed, so that he can travel overseas, return to his home and avoid drug testing.

Pistorius' lawyers will reportedly ask a court for the ban on foreign travel to be lifted, along with the removal of a condition relating to mandatory drug and alcohol tests, the Herald Sun reports.

Arguing that Pistorius is not a flight risk, the lawyers said that Pistorius has asked for the ban on talking to the residents of his gated community to be lifted and that he be allowed to return to his Pretoria home where his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was shot.

However, Pistorius's agent Peet van Zyl said that he was not aware of Pistorius having any desire to travel abroad and added that his participation in overseas competitions had been cancelled. (ANI)
