Britain’s Prince Harry has revealed his support for rugby legend Ben Cohen’s anti-bullying charity.

The prince and rugby union star posed together after a charity football match celebrating the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO).

The image, which Cohen recently posted on his Facebook and Twitter page, shows the two hunks holding up a t-shirt for The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation.

Cohen tweeted: ‘My opposite number in the football match today was the Great Prince Harry! Harry loves what we are doing with StandUp!’

Cohen is one of the first straight professional athletes in Britain to focus his philanthropic efforts for the benefit of the gay community.

The foundation aims to raise awareness of the long-term damaging effects of bullying, and promises to stand up to bullying regardless of who is the victim.

On the website, Cohen says: ‘It is time we stand up for what is right and support people who are being harmed.

‘Every person on this planet has a right to be true to themselves, to love and be loved, and to be happy. I encourage others to stand up with me and make a difference.’
