Making his first outing aboard a white Popemobile, the new pontiff Francis meets crowds gathered in St Peter's Square ahead of his inauguration mass.

The grandiose mass, which will be held in the piazza, will feature symbolic rituals and spectacular imagery.

Francis, who was elected pope last week, left his temporary Vatican residence, Casa Santa Marta, around 8.45am local time (7.45 GMT) and began the day by greeting the crowds of well wishers who had gathered in the square, at one point disembarking his vehicle to bless an invalid man.
