According to the Washington Post, the 27-year-old royal came to the aid of American businessman Bash Kazi, after the player was knocked unconscious during a frightening mid-game collision.

Harry, “was the first one off his horse,” Kazi, 41, told the paper. “I remember waking up with these piercing blue eyes looking at me.”

Harry reportedly turned Kazi over after he fell, and did his best to make sure the Washington D.C.-based defense contractor regained consciousness. Post-match, Kazi underwent a CT scan; aside from a minor concussion, the American was given a clean bill of health by his doctors.

Though they started off the game as rivals, Harry quickly gained a fan in the appreciative Kazi, who referred to the prince “a fabulous person” and “such a gentleman.”

In the end, the Prince’s team defeated Kazi’s, 6-3–and the contractor says he can’t wait for a re-match. Says Kazi, “I look forward to squaring off with him in the U.S.”
