Harry hares home and proves to be a world beater

USAIN Bolt was beaten in a race by Prince Harry, who left the fastest man in the world behind in a cloud of dust.

Harry flashed through the finishing line arms held aloft as the Jamaican looked on bemused and with his hands on his hips.

But the historic win owed more to the royal jumping the gun when the Olympic 100-metre champion was not looking.

Bolt, 25, immediately called for a rematch against the third-in-line to the throne who side-stepped the issue.

The Jamaican sprinter, who lined up against the prince when the pair met at the athlete’s training track in Kingston, said: “He cheated, I said we would have a rematch in London 2012 and Harry said ‘I’m busy’.”

Bolt praised the Queen’s grandson, who is visiting Jamaica to mark her Diamond Jubilee: “He’s cool, very down to earth.

“He just wanted to laugh – it was a pleasure to meet him.”
