South Africa's Constitutional court has dismissed an application by paralympic gold medallist Oscar Pistorius to appeal his sentence for murdering his girlfriend, legal documents showed on Monday.

The decision means that the 31-year-old, who was found guilty of murdering his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine's Day in 2015 can not make any further attempts to appeal his sentence.

"The Constitutional Court has considered the application for condonation and leave to appeal".

The NPA said it was pleased with the order.

"The court looked at our papers and are convinced with what we had argued in our papers".

South Africa's highest court dismissed Pistorius' request to review the sentence on Monday (Tuesday NZ Time), bringing a close to a five-year legal saga surrounding the man who was once one of the world's most celebrated athletes.

Legal experts say Olympian Oscar Pistorius has finally run out of options to appeal his 13-year prison sentence for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp.

In a television interview, he said he believed an intruder was in the house and "instant fear" drove him to grab his gun and walk on his stumps towards the bathroom before opening fire.

The National Prosecuting Authority was unhappy with the trial court's sentence of six years and took the matter back to the SCA on appeal.

Pistorius was originally convicted of culpable homicide by the High Court in Pretoria in 2014.

But the term was slammed as "shockingly low" by prosecutors, and was doubled to 13 years after being upgraded to murder on appeal last November.

Pistorius, whose lower legs were amputated because of a congenital defect, soared to global fame after becoming the first double amputee to compete in the 2012 Olympic Games.
