The Name is Harry…Prince Harry

No Prince Harry isn’t the new James Bond, bu he did manage to rescue a damsel in distress today at the London Marathon. During the medal presentations, 86 years old former Olympian Sylvia Disley slipped over on stage and Harry rushed to her aid. He bent down to took her arm to help her back on her feet again, and as they left the stage he was seen still holding on to her hand in a reassuring fashion.  Luckily Sylvia didn’t seem to be injured by the fall and took the mishap in good spirits.

When former Olympian Sylvia Disley slipped over during the medal presentation at today's London marathon, at least she had a royal on hand to come to her rescue in the form of Prince Harry

 Prince Harry rushed to Sylvia's aid when she noticed she'd taken a tumble during the medal ceremony at today's London Marathon 

She seemed to still be smiling even though she tumbled to the ground and matched Harry’s grin as he firmly grasped her hand.  Sylvia made the 200 metres sprint final at the 1948 Olympics and won a bronze medal in the 4x100m relay at the next Olympics in 1952.

Harry and another man caught Sylvia's arms and helped her back on her feet again

Luckily Sylvia did not appear to be too shaken by the fall
