BT remains tight-lipped on relationship with murder suspect Oscar Pistorius
British Telecom (BT) has declined to comment on its working relationship with murder-accused athlete Oscar Pistorius.
The company, for which Pistorius is a London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Ambassador, said today in a statement: "Our thoughts are with all those affected by this tragedy. Given the ongoing legal proceedings, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further."
In December last year the athlete launched a BT campaign celebrating the most memorable moments of London 2012.
Pistorius launched the campaign in front of guests at the BT British Olympic Ball, including Olympians, Paralympians, London 2012 stakeholders and media.

The athlete was himself voted among the top 10, securing joint tenth place for the moment he took gold in the T44 400 metres. He shared the accolade with Katherine Grainger and Anna Watkins winning Olympic gold in the double sculls.
On its website, BT dubs Pistorius "one of the greatest success stories of the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games".
The athlete was today formally charged with the murder of his girlfriend.
He wept in court as prosecutors said they would pursue a "premeditated murder" charge over the death of South African model Reeva Steenkamp.
An application for bail was postponed until next Tuesday and Pistorius, 26, will remain in police custody.
