Brazilian Paralympic champion Alan Oliveira says he wants to see arch rival Oscar Pistorius return to racing when he is released from prison.
The pair were embroiled in an argument about the length of Oliveira’s‘unfair’ artificial legs after he beat Pistorius to T44 200m gold at London 2012.

Pistorius was jailed for five years in 2014 for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp but could be let out in 2015.
“I wish he’d come back and we could run more times together,” said Oliveira.
“I think it’d be a good competition to see the two of us together again, repeating the duel seen in London.”
Pistorius shot Steenkamp in February 2013 and was handed his sentence for ‘culpable homicide’ last October.
The South African’s defence team said it expected him to serve about 10 months, with the remainder under house arrest.
Following the conviction, the International Paralympic Committee banned Pistorius, 28, from all disabled competitions for five years, regardless of whether he secures an early release.
