Funnyman Eddie Izzard has urged his fellow Brits to volunteer to help run the London Olympic Games in 2012 - because it will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The comedian embarked on a mammoth charity run across the U.K. in 2009, taking in 1,100 miles (1,770 kilometres) in 51 days and raising more than $300,000 (£200,000) for British charity Sport Relief.
And he's encouraging charitable citizens in the U.K. to offer up their services for the sporting tournament in 2012.
In a specially filmed recruitment video, Izzard says, "We need volunteers: team players, those people willing to push themselves as far as they can to get their work done. Whatever role you are allocated, everything you do will be to help make the Games one of the most amazing experiences of people's lives. Imagine being able to tell your grandkids that you were part of the London 2012 Games!"
