(CNN) - The Summer Olympic Games is bringing a big boost to London.
Britain's Prince Harry met with teen Olympic hopefuls this week, and he keeps getting reminded of his own shot at taking on an Olympic champion.
It's a moment from earlier this year that Prince Harry just can't let go of.
"However it's marginally less embarrassing than seeing my brother cheat his way to become the fastest man on the planet," said his brother, Prince William.
Then this week it was the turn of Olympics minister, Jeremy Hunt.
"He's the only person here who's beat Usain Bolt in a flat race," said Hunt.
The minister and Prince Harry had invited young Olympic hopefuls to Clarence House. They included a junior sprinting champion who admitted he played too many computer games.
"Don't worry, Usain Bolt eats chicken nuggets," said Prince Harry.
"He made a few jokes comparing me with Usain Bolt and about my stature and how I play computer games while he eats chicken nuggets so we just has a casual conversation. It was really, really good," said Hamilton.
[Reporter]: "In terms of the Olympics so far, how much do you think it's really encouraging young people to get involved?"
"I think the Olympics in London especially is like the best thing that could inspire young children to get involved in sports cuz like from the time you see athletes that you see kinda every day at a venues competing at the top level. It gives you the itching feeling that you much try that," said Hamilton.
"Your life principles, all the principles that we always forget as teenagers and older, all the way up to my age I guess, we forget about the things that are most important and I think in sport it really shows and it really comes across. So congratulations to you guys and hopefully you will grow and grow and grow to be great things and then we can beat China," said Prince Harry.
