Pope Francis is still feeling ‘slightly unwell’ and has cancelled his official audiences today, the Vatican has said.
The 83-year-old pontiff has scrapped an audience with tech chiefs including Microsoft and IBM executives today – a day after calling off an appearance at a Mass in Rome.
Francis had appeared to have a cold during an Ash Wednesday service at the Vatican earlier this week.
The Vatican has offered no details on the nature of the pope’s illness, except to say that he had a ‘slight indisposition’.
