Prince Harry is set to represent the British Royal Family at one of the Olympics' most popular spectator sports - beach volleyball.

The playboy prince is said to be a fan of the sport, having taken part in a game earlier this year during a visit to Brazil.

A spokesman for the prince said Harry is "extremely excited" at the thought of watching beach volleyball, as he is with "all the Olympic events" he will attend over the next few weeks.
