Prince Harry showed he has inherited his father's gift for looking awkward on foreign trips when he tried to imitate Usain Bolt's victory celebrations during a visit to Jamaica yesterday.

The party-loving Prince had just beaten Bolt, the fastest sprinter in history, in a mock race (admittedly, the 100m world-record holder did not appear to be at full stretch). Bolt got his revenge once they crossed the finishing line. As he struck his trademark pose, Harry – in a Jamaica training kit – tried to follow suit. The Prince, 27, was visiting the University of the West Indies stadium on the latest leg of his Caribbean tour to commemorate his grandmother's Diamond Jubilee. Fortunately, he wasn't called upon to dance in public.
