In town as part of his tour to promote the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, Harry, 27, clearly felt pre-race jitters. After getting a false start, Harry raced down the stadium track as Bolt jogged behind, arguing that the prince cheated.

"He cheated," the BBC quotes Bolt as saying jokingly of the prince, who met with Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miler during his time in the area Tuesday. "I said we would have a rematch in London 2012 and Harry said 'I'm busy.'"
