Harry leaves King of Sprint trailing in his wake

It wasn't exactly forseen – the fastest man in the world being beaten by a VIP visitor to his training ground.

But Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt, the current world and Olympic record holder in both the 100 and 200 metre races, made a concerted effort to make Prince Harry look good.

After all, he's grandson of the island's head of state, the Queen, and had just been awarded an honorary fellowship by the University of the West Indies where the Olympic hero has a track named in his honour. 

He started off by instructing the royal in the techniques that helped him first out of the starting blocks in the Beijing games, then challenged him to a race.

Halfway through to the delight of the crowd Usain paused, allowing his guest to charge ahead.

As he raced the finish line, jubilant Harry beamed and raised his arms aloft.

Then the champion sportingly showed him his traditional victory dance.
