Oscar Pistorius' coach, Ampie Louw said on Friday that the Olympic and Paralympic star can return to training if he is released on bail. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PISTORIUS' COACH, AMPIE LOUW, SAYING: "No, that I cannot say because I'm not the legal side of it, but I'm ready. We can start training Monday, if he's out on bail." A South African judge is likely to decide later on Friday whether to grant bail to "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius, with prosecutors arguing he is a cold-blooded killer and his lawyers saying he is far too famous to pose any sort of flight risk. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PISTORIUS' COACH, AMPIE LOUW, SAYING: "Yeah, I think just to get his mind sort of clear, the sooner he can start with a bit of work the better." Pistorius' defence team say the athlete shot dead girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, 29, in a tragic mistake at his home in the early hours of February 14 - Valentine's Day - and deserves bail to prepare for a case that has drawn world-wide attention.
