The global head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, has suffered a black-eye after losing his balance when his motorcade came to an abrupt stop during his tour in Columbia.
The incident occurred on the last day of the pope’s four-city Colombian tour.
The 80-year-old was left with blood on his white cape after colliding with a glass frame of the vehicle and had bruises on his cheek and eye area.
According to Sun UK, TV footage showed him colliding with the glass-and-white frame of the vehicle’s covered platform, and then being assisted by his bodyguard.
The Vatican spokesman, Greg Burke said the pope has been treated and he is alright.
“The pope is alright. Ice was put on it and he was treated.
“He will continue the schedule for his visit with no changes,” he added
