Prince Harry may be royal of many talents, but sprinting does not appear to be one of them.
After a false start, Harry – who also planned to meet Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller on Tuesday – raced down the track while Bolt jogged behind him.
“He cheated. I said we would have a rematch in London 2012 and Harry said, ‘I’m busy,’ ” joked Bolt. “He’s cool, very down to earth. When you meet dignitaries you think it will be difficult, but he just wanted to laugh – it was an honor and a pleasure to meet him.”
