The OPERA experiment has observed muon neutrino to tau neutrino oscillations in the atmospheric sector. Based on this result new limits on the mixing parameters of a massive sterile neutrino have been set. In this talk the analysis performed in the 3+1 neutrino model is presented. The status of the searches for sterile neutrinos performed on LBL experiments is also recalled and perspectives discussed.
