The Pope almost fell after a woman grabbed his hand and wouldn’t let go while he was greeting people at st Peter’s Square before the new year celebrations.
In the video he had to slap the unidentified women’s hand to free himself from her grip.
The video went viral on the internet, however the Pope apologised when he was delivering his message
“So many times we lose patience. Me, too. I say ‘excuse me’ for the bad example.”
