Harry Steals World Sprint Crown

Prince Harry and Usain Bolt in Jamaica

Controversy surrounded the meeting of the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt and Prince Harry yesterday in Kingston, Jamaica. The high profile pair met at the University of the West Indies track during the prince's Diamond Jubilee tour of island nations.

What was billed as a 'meet and greet' and mini-sprint session turned serious when Prince Harry stole a march on sprint ace Bolt and claimed victory in the contest. Wearing a track suit emblazoned with Jamaica's colours of green, black and gold, the prince got off to a blatant false start however Usain Bolt saw the funny side of the royal ruse, and joined Harry in a post-dash trademark pointing pose.
