Brasília (AFP) - Prince Harry was among the spectators in Brasilia on Monday night as World Cup hosts Brazil beat Cameroon 4-1 to finish top of Group A.

Harry is visiting Brazil and Chile in support of Britain's interests in the region and to build on the links he began to forge in South America during his official visit to Brazil in March 2012.

The week long tour began in Brasilia on Monday with a visit to Rede Sarah Hospital where he met patients, their families and medical staff, the Prince's website said.

Harry watched wheelchair basketball and wheelchair dance physio and joined in some of the rehabilitiation activities.

He will visit Brazil's largest city Sao Paulo before he moves on to the Chilean capital Santiago and the city of Valparaiso during the final three days of the trip.

Brazil gave their best performance of the tournament so far as Neymar scored twice while Fred and Fernandinho also got on the score sheet, with Joel Matip notching a goal for the African challengers.

England are schedule to play their final Group D match, against Costa Rica, on Tuesday after losing their first two World Cup games against Italy and Uruguay.
