Prosecutors still to identify substance found at Pistorius' home

South African prosecutors have said they're not sure whether the substance they found at the house of Oscar Pistorius was testosterone.

An investigating officer had claimed during Pistorius' bail hearing that police found two boxes of performance enhancing drugs and needles in the bedroom of the Olympic athlete, who denies the premeditated murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

A spokesperson for South Africa's National Prosecution Agency says it was too early to identify the substance as it was still undergoing laboratory tests.
