After a false start, Harry, 27, sprinted down the track while a laughing Bolt jogged behind him, the BBC reports.

"He cheated. I said we would have a rematch in London 2012 and Harry said 'I'm busy,'" he joked.

Bolt, 25, also praised the prince, according to the BBC.

"He's cool, very down to earth," he said. "When you meet dignitaries you think it will be difficult but he just wanted to laugh - it was an honor and a pleasure to meet him."

But, Bolt added, "I'm still the fastest man in the world so he has a long way to go."

Harry is in Jamaica as part of his trip celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, which marks her 60 years on the throne. The tour previously brought him to Belize and the Bahamas.
