South African athlete Oscar Pistorius was knocked over in a nightclub altercation in Johannesburg over the weekend.

The Paralympian, who is currently on trial for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last year, is said to have clashed with another partygoer at the city's VIP Room club after the man approached the sports star.

Pistorius is said to have been knocked to the ground in the alleged dust-up before security staff intervened.

A spokesperson for the star confirms the incident, and insists Pistorius did not start the argument, saying, "(The man) started to aggressively interrogate him on matters relating to the trial... An argument ensued during which my client asked to be left alone. Oscar soon thereafter left the club with his cousin."

The incident comes just days after his trial was adjourned until next month. Pistorius admits shooting Steenkamp at his home in Pretoria in February last year but denies murder, insisting he mistook her for an intruder.
