Pope Francis turns 80

Pope Francis has celebrated his 80th birthday with a mass and a gluten-free cake made by a pastry chef in Rome.

At the special morning mass, he asked his cardinals to pray for him after confessing the thought of old age frightened him.

Eight homeless people were invited to breakfast, before the Pontiff continued his day “as normal” with meetings and audiences.
