Princes Jostle For Ball At Commonwealth Games

The Duke of Cambridge and his brother Prince Harry proved they were not immune to a bit of sibling rivalry as they jostled for a football during a kick about in Glasgow.

The pair joined youngsters for a game of five-a-side football at the city's Gorbals Leisure Centre with Harry's team emerging the victors with a 1-0 win.

"They were saying they were rubbish but they're not too bad," one spectator said.

Harry also practised his left hook and got physical sparring with some of the programme's boxing apprentices at a coaching session in the host city.

While her husband showed off his ball skills, the Duchess of Cambridge met athletes at a reception for the charity Sports Aid - which she is a patron of.

The Royals also visited the athletes village at the Commonwealth Games and met some of the stars of Team Scotland.

They were shown around the purpose-built complex - which includes furniture and fittings from the London 2012 Olympics.

Later on, the Royals were back in the stands at Hampden Park for a second day at the Glasgow 2014 games after enjoying the gymnastics and boxing on Monday.
