On the red carpet, there was a stand of Chinese calligraphy, so every guest could get a roll of rice paper on silk with calligraphy written especially for him. Henry got his roll with his name written in Chinese.
Henry presented the award for Best Team (to Germany Men's Football team). Henry's fellow British actor Benedict Cumberbatch hosted the event.
After Henry presented the award, Benedict made a brief interview with him, sitting in the auditorium. Benedict asked Henry if he was starstruck by any of the athletes, and Henry called the name of All Blacks legend Sean Fitzpatrick.
Both Henry Cavill and Benedict Cumberbatch were sporting Dunhill suits.
