Prince Harry challenged Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt to a race.

The British royal is currently touring the island of Jamaica, and while there he challenged the world’s fastest man to a race. Bolt took him up on his offer. The two competed in a friendly race at the University of West Indies in Kingston on Tuesday.

With camera crews and plenty of paparazzi around, the two gave it their best shot. Well, Prince Harry did. Bolt let him win. The gun went off and Harry took off running while Bolt jogged to the finish line.

“He cheated. I said we would have a rematch in London 2012 and Harry said, ‘I’m busy,’” Bolt joked. “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.”
