Prince Harry has finished his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, but before going home to play naked billiards and flirt with Pippa Middleton, he gave a few interviews and showed the press around Camp Bastion (video below).

He said: 'You can ask the guys: I thrash them at Fifa the whole time.'

In an interview conducted before he flew home to the UK from his deployment as an Apache helicopter co-pilot gunner (CPG), the 28-year-old revealed how he and his friends in 662 Squadron based in Camp Bastion played computer games and ate pizza when they had time off. [...]

Showing appealing modesty about his obvious skills as a pilot, the Prince said his skills at sports and games helped pave the way for him to become a top pilot.

He said: 'Exams were always a nightmare, but anything like kicking a ball around or playing PlayStation - or flying - I do generally find a little bit easier than walking, sometimes.

'It's a joy for me because I'm one of those people who loves playing PlayStation and Xbox, so with my thumbs I like to think that I'm probably quite useful.'

Actually, he doesn't sound modest about any of those things. Except maybe his walking skills. But as Harry seems to be saying, if you win enough matches in FIFA, you too can be a better (co-)pilot in an army fight a real war than a walker or exam taker.

Anyway, here's Prince Harry publicly outing one of his army friends as a Spurs fan...
