Francis apologised to the faithful in St Peter's Square for showing up seven minutes late for his traditional noon appointment with the public.

Apparently referring to electric power, Francis said a "drop in tension" caused the lift to block.

He said Holy See firefighters rescued him and asked the people in the square to applaud them.
