Prince Harry thrills in Brazil

Prince Harry completed a charity fun run in Brazil's capital Rio De Janeiro on Saturday wearing an usual item of kit - a Duke of Cambridge face mask.

Harry had begun the event without it, but is thought to have been given the mask by another runner.

He completed the Sport Relief Mile race in just six minutes

Harry, 27, and William, 29, never miss an opportunity to continue their friendly rivalry whenever they are away on tour with the brothers usually poking fun at each other in speeches.

The prince, was taking part in a British-themed sports day - part of a Great campaign event to celebrate the passion Brazil and the UK share for sports, an organiser said.

Great aims to promote Britain in key foreign cities on the back of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and London 2012 to encourage those overseas to visit, study or do business in the UK.
