The Pope has had many fine moments since he took the Roman Catholic Church's top position three years ago - but his most recent public appearance was anything but.

The Argentinian stumbled as he was arriving at the Black Madonna shrine of Czestochowa in the country's south.
However the fall didn't appear to faze Pope Francis, who was helped to his feet and went on with the service.
