A young boy stole the show in St Peter's Square on Saturday when he climbed on stage to greet Pope Francis, and stayed close by as the pontiff delivered his speech. The scene - which took place while the pontiff was meeting Catholic families from around the world - was captured by Vatican Television. The Pope was listening to residents of the island of Lampedusa and migrants who had reached Italy by sea, when the child left the bench on the side of the stage where he had been seated with other children. Pope Francis seemed amused as the boy refused to leave the centre-stage, despite several attempts by aides and security personnel. Report by Mark Morris.
