Watching Prince Harry Watch Wheelchair Rugby Will Make You Love Him More
The Invictus Games founder brought his A-game to the stands
Prince Harry is no ordinary sports fan. He is the best sports fan.
On Wednesday evening the royal was among the fans at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida, for the Invictus Games wheelchair rugby finals.
Wearing a blue Oxford shirt and jeans, he cheered on the U.K. team to a bronze medal win over Australia.
During the match, he led a loud chant of “Oy! Oy! Oy!” and alternately cheered, clapped, pointed, did the wave, saluted on the “Salute-Cam,” snapped photos with his phone and took selfies with fans.

During rousing remarks before the match, the Vice President praised Prince Harry and joked about his wife’s involvement in the inaugural London Games in 2014.
“Jill went to London for the last Games,” he told the packed field house. “She spent too much damn time with Prince Harry.”

On a serious note, he said of the country’s troops, “You are the masters of our country’s soul” – a reference to the “Invictus” poem written in 1875 by William Ernest Henley. “You are the backbone, the spine,” Vice President Biden added, noting, “We’re a military family. Our son Beau was a major. He used to have a saying and he lived it, he’d say, ‘Never complain and never explain.’ And he lived it.”
Between the two final matches, Prince Harry took in the Jaguar Land Rover Wheelchair Rugby Exhibition Match with celeb competitors Derek Hough, Shawn Johnson, Eric Decker, Jessie James Decker and team coaches Wilmer Valderrama and WWE superstar John Cena. (Valderrama’s Team Jaguar beat Cena’s Team Land Rover 12-9.)
Wheelchair rugby “is full-contact, no pads, no helmets, full-throttle,” Valderrama told PEOPLE at a practice earlier on Wednesday. “It’s everything Americans love about sports! It doesn’t get more tough than these guys.”
