Prince Harry watched the Monday night's World Cup match in Brasilia in which the host team Brazil beat Cameroon 4-1 and tops the Group A. Prince Harry is on a week long tour. He started his tour by visiting Brasilia's Rede Sarah Hospital on Monday morning. He met with patients, their families and medical staff there.

29-year-old Prince continued his tour of Brazil on Tuesday, June 24, by visiting Minas Tennis Club in the city of Belo Horizonte. The British Olympic and Paralympic teams were present at the club where a training camp will be held for the teams ahead of the 2016 Summer Games in Rio.

The Prince partook in the game-play too and charmed both coaches and kids. Many native folks which included scores of women raced to meet the prince who is known for his wild shenanigans. Some of them became teary-eyed upon seeing him live for the first time. In the stadium, Harry had a one-on-one meeting with a famous Brazilian swimmer. 

He got to announce the start of the race and commended the Olympic champion swimmer on his fit physique. "Cesar, you look great," Harry said. As for the Olympian, he said that Harry was a very nice and friendly personality and it was great to hang out with him. 

The master swimmer also praised Great Britain’s Olympic team and said that they would make Harry’s nation proud. "He seems to be a very nice guy," the Olympian said afterward.

"It's one of the biggest moments in the entire history of the project. Great Britain has come off a great Olympic result in 2012. It's an honor for the club to have such a great nation based here."

Prince Harry later on entered the field and played ball with some young kids. It was a fun-filled spectacle to watch. As Harry stood in front of the goalposts, he let the kids score against him in order to humor them. Then he changed positions and tried to score against the little ones. 

"I'll go in goal, and you take some penalties at me, then you go in goal, and I'll take some penalties," he told the kids.

One of the officials present said that it was obvious from seeing him play with the youngsters that Harry absolutely loved being around children. He would prove to be an ideal role model for them. 

"It's a dream for the children to meet him. You can tell he loves children," education manager Claudio Olivio said of Prince Harry. "He's a very good role model for the children."

Harry furthermore proceeded to shoot a few hoops and stood at attention for some memorable pictures taken of him and the kids. However, even such a fun-loving person as Prince Harry had his breaking point. 

When he was challenged to a game of Judo by the champion Luciano Correia, he declined the offer saying that he was not ready for any of that stuff. Later on, the prince was a guest of honor at the match between Costa Rica and England.
