Prince Charles

Britain's Prince Charles sparred with a Jamaican boxer.

The heir apparent was visiting the athletes village at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, yesterday (23.07.14) when he squared up to Cheavon Clarke, reports Mail Online.

Prince Charles began sparring with his opponent and even threw a punch at the professional boxer during the mock bust-up, while his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, looked on amused.

Following the fight, the 64 year old- who is also known to be a keen polo player, scuba diver and fly fisherman - chuckled as he shook Cheavon's hand, before leaving the Emirates Arena.

The royal couple also visited members of the British cycling team - who quickly took to Twitter to share the news of their encounter.

Team England's physio Stephen Chew posted a number of photos of the event along with the caption: "Competing cyclists and @weRengland at the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome being supported by @Charles_HRH #teamengland (sic)".

The pair also visited the headquarters of the Scottish Ballet before joining the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen at the Celtic Park Stadium, where she opened the Games.
