Pope Francis gets black eye, bruises after mobile accident [Photos]

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.
