Published: Updated:

The Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Naif has been caught on camera talking football with a young boy with Down Syndrome.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Naif was attending a gathering held by Saut: The Voice of Down Syndrome Society, of which he is the honorary president, when cameras caught him playfully talking to a young boy who said he wished his football team - Al-Nasr - would win their next game.

The crown prince can be seen asking the boy, “Do you like Al-Nasr club?” to which the boy replied ‘yes’. Prince Mohammed bin Naif then says, “I support all the football clubs in Saudi Arabia. Let’s hope it is a good match.”

The Saudi crown prince was meeting the society’s members and organizers on Sunday to ensure the welfare of students with Down Syndrome was being taken care off.

In 2015, Prince Mohammed bin Naif decided to fund the construction of a school for children afflicted with the condition. The school was named after him and run by the society’s members.
