Harry is to receive the Pat Tillman Award for Service, awarded by sports channel ESPN to individuals in the sporting world who have made significant contributions to the lives of others.

The duke is being recognised for founding the Invictus Games a decade ago to support injured and sick servicemen and women both on active duty and veterans who are navigating physical and invisible injuries.

Past recipients include manchester -united-fc>Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford, who waged a high-profile campaign to persuade the Government to provide free meals to vulnerable youngsters in England through the school holidays during the Covid pandemic.

ESPN vice-president of production Kate Jackson said: “It’s our privilege to recognise three incredible individuals Steve Gleason, Dawn Staley and Prince Harry.”

“These honourees have used their platforms to change the world and make it more inclusive for marginalised and suffering communities, demonstrating incredible resilience, positivity and perseverance, and we’re thrilled to celebrate them at the 2024 ESPYs.”

ESPN said Harry is being honoured for his “tireless work in making a positive impact for the veteran community through the power of sport”.

It said the Invictus Games has “transcended borders and impacted lives across every continent”.

Harry’s Sussex.com website confirmed the news, announcing: “During this year’s ESPYs, ESPN will recognize exceptional individuals who exemplify courage, perseverance, and service.”

“Among the esteemed recipients is Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, who will be honored with the Pat Tillman Award for Service.”

The 2024 ESPY (Excellence in Sport Performance Yearly) ceremony in Los Angeles will be hosted by tennis champion Serena Williams a friend of the Duchess of Sussex.

The Pat Tillman Award for Service is name after former NFL player and US Army Ranger Pat Tillman, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2004.

Harry travelled to the UK in May for a special event at St Paul’s Cathedral to mark 10 years of the Invictus Games.
