Prince Harry made fun of Jeremy Hunt's bell mishap as they celebrated Britain's next generation of sports stars. The Culture Secretary 'dropped a clanger' when he narrowly avoided injuring spectators after a bell he was ringing to mark the start of the London Olympics went flying in to the crowd.
The Prince joked with Mr Hunt about the incident as they were introduced to talented youngsters who achieved success in the inaugural School Games.
Nearly 2,000 schoolchildren had the chance to compete in four main Olympic venues, before the start of the Games.
Harry, who is president of the School Games, met a group of the winning athletes at a reception at Clarence House, in central London, and urged the promising youngsters to aim for success at the next Olympics in Brazil.
Harry said, "I urge you to pick up the torch - or, in Jeremy's case, the bell - and I expect to see your faces again when you stand on the podium at Rio and beyond."
Carl Hester gave Great Britain a strong start today in their quest for a first Olympic dressage medal.
The 45-year-old, who is riding in his fourth Olympics, scored 77.72% on Uthopia, the highest score of the opening seven-rider session at Greenwich Park.
He was joined at the top of the leader board by Britain's Laura Bechtolsheimer, who is currently in second place after scoring 76.839%.
Britain are the reigning European team champions, and their trio of Hester, Bechtolsheimer and Charlotte Dujardin have an outstanding chance of Olympic gold.
British boxer Anthony Ogogo has delivered a major Olympic upset by defeating Ukraine's Ievgen Khytrov, an opponent rated as the best middleweight at the Games.
Ogogo produced the performance of his life as he matched the highly-fancied Khytrov through three gritty rounds as the bout ended level.
The judges found nothing between the fighters after scoring them 18-18 at the contest's end, and could not separate them again once all the scorecards were totalled.
It left the ringside judges voting on a preferred winner across the fight, with a majority deciding Ogogo had done enough to progress.
