HOUSTON (AP) — Usain Bolt says he was in shock when he heard fellow Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius had been arrested and charged in the shooting death of his model girlfriend.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Friday night after the NBA’s All-Star celebrity game, the Jamaican gold medalist still couldn’t seem to believe it.

He says: “I’m still just trying to process it in my head to see if this is really real.”

Bolt says he doesn’t know Pistorius well, but that he has seen and spoken to him at various events.

Asked if he plans to reach out to the double-amputee sprinter who became a star of the London Olympics, Bolt wasn’t sure.

He says: “I’ve got to stand back and see what’s going on and then I’ll decide what to do.”
