Ethiopia's Feyisa Lilesa marked his silver medal in the Olympic Games men's marathon on Sunday by staging a dramatic protest against his country's government, claiming his life could be in peril.
Lilesa, who was second to Kenyan favoutite Eliud Kipchoge, crossed his arms above his head as he finished the gruelling event as a protest against the Ethiopian government's crackdown on political dissent.
"I have relatives in prison back home," he said.
"If you talk about democracy they kill you. If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me, or put me in prison.
