Prince Harry’s date with a cycling gold medallist

Twenty-four hours after she won gold in the women’s omnium, British cyclist Laura Trott scored an even more enviable prize – a date with Prince Harry.

Harry watched Laura, 20, ride to victory on Tuesday and was so impressed with her athleticism he asked her out the following day.

The prince took Laura to the final of his favourite sport, the women’s beach volleyball, where they spent the day laughing and chatting.
