The Pope showed he has a sense of humour as well as a caring side today when he donned a red nose at the wedding of members of a charity that uses clowns to cheer up children.
Pope Francis appeared at the Vatican to congratulate the newlyweds from the Rainbow Association Marco Iagulli Onlus who were getting married there.
As the pair came down the steps, he took the opportunity to show his support for the charity by donning the universal symbol of comedy.
Francis is fast becoming well known for his informal manner, which has landed him in situations that would have been unthinkable to his predecessors.
He has opened an account on the popular photo-sharing site Instagram, posed for selfies with worshippers after mass and, just seven days ago, barely batted an eyelid when a youngster leapt on stage at the Vatican.
