The two Ethiopian runners, Haile Gebrselassie and Fyissa Lilesa, said they are ready to go to the front line of the Tigray War against rebel forces.

The announcement of the two Olympic champions comes after the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, said he would go to the front to lead the war.

Rebels in Tigray say they are advancing towards the capital, Addis Ababa.

Germany and France are the latest two countries to advise their citizens to leave Ethiopia, amid an escalation of the civil war.
