Walking in his mother's footsteps, Prince Harry has been using his popularity for good this week to raise awareness of Aids during a visit to South Africa.

Just like his mum before him, the Prince did not shy away from getting into the thick of it, arriving at one of the country's most dangerous townships to learn about projects which use football to educate youngsters about the deadly virus.

Khayelitsha Township is notorious as the place where the body of honeymoon murder victim Anni Dewani was found, and where two of those convicted for their part in her killing were from.

But Harry was undaunted and, during his visit to the Football for Hope Centre, where the organisation Grassroots Soccer works, seemed particularly taken with little four-year-old Sinentlantla Jacobs who took his hand and would not let go.
