Cape Town - Oscar Pistorius has landed a spot on People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" list.

People wrote: "Before the 2012 London Olympics, much of the world didn't know Oscar Pistorius. But the South African runner changed that when he became the first double-amputee sprinter to compete at the Summer Games.

"Nicknamed Blade Runner, Pistorius (25) didn't medal but he inspired millions. His attitude? 'Being disabled doesn't have to be a disadvantage'."

The Paralympic gold medallist retweeted People's list, adding:

"Thank you! Haha #8, honoured!"

The South African athletics star appeared on a list that was topped by Magic Mike star Channing Tatum.
