Athlete Oscar Pistorius will be moved from his prison cell in Pretoria to a family member's house for correctional supervision on 20 October.

Despite receiving a five-year sentence for shooting and killing Reeva Steenkamp, once Pistorius is released on Tuesday, he would have served just one year of that sentence behind bars.

However, this is far from the end of the situation for Pistorius, as the state is currently preparing an appeal to change his charge from culpable homicide to murder.

There was a mixed reaction to the news of Pistorius' release from prison on Twitter. Read some of the reactions below (Disclaimer: The opinions below are those of the Twitter users quoted, and not ZAlebs):
