According to sources, the 85-year-old, who has been sovereign of the Vatican City State since 2013, was wheeled into the Paul VI Hall at the Vatican for a meeting of a Catholic organisation of sisters and nuns. This comes after he has been suffering for months with pain specifically in his right knee. The pain has had crippling effects on his mobility. Before Thursday, it was reported that the Pope was only able to walk 10 metres from the side entrance to his seat, but has most likely been advised to stay in the wheelchair to help his knee heal.
