The Pope in Hospital

As you may have seen in the news, Pope Benedict has had surgery on his wrist following a fall while on holiday yesterday. After the fall the Holy Father apparently said Mass and then had breakfast before going to hospital, where he was found to have a small break in the wrist. Here he is seen thanking medical staff as he returned to his holiday; the cast can be seen on his right arm. It's the first time that the Pope has been in hospital since his election in April 2005.
