He may have a reputation for being something of a playboy, but Prince Harry showed that when it comes to fast cars his skills are somewhat lacking as he took on a group of children at a racing simulator game in Brazil.

Harry jumped at the chance to get behind the wheel of one of the driving simulators as he toured the Ayrton Senna Institute in São Paulo, set up in memory of the late racing driver, before bidding Brazil farewell with a thank you message recorded on a mobile phone in a first for the Royal family.

The prince was shown around the institute, which works with disadvantaged children and young adults, by the iconic driver’s older sister Viviane Senna, before getting a chance to indulge in what he does best – charming a group of local children and getting stuck into some sporty action.
