The Duke of Sussex has taken part in the ISPS Sports Values Summit in Tokyo to raise awareness for the Sentebale charity he co-founded.

Prince Harry travelled to Tokyo ahead of the annual fundraising polo match being held in Singapore this Saturday to aid young people affected by HIV and Aids in Lesotho. He joined the panel to discuss the power of sport.

Prince Harry said, “I have long believed that sport is a conduit for healing – not just for the mind and body but the world. Sport requires having a dream and the need for community. Whether banded together in victory or showing up with respect in loss, no-one ever crosses a finish line or scores a goal without the help and belief of others. The lessons we learn on the field are often the same principles of philanthropy; that a mission, hard work, dedication, and partnership can make even the impossible, possible. That is what giving back requires, and we are all capable of creating or joining a team to do so.”
