Soccer-loving Pope Francis gets a new toy: a foosball table
Pope Francis has received dozens of soccer jerseys and game balls during his eight-year pontificate and he got a new football-themed toy lately: his very own foosball table.
Francis played a round on the table that was presented to him at the end of his general audience by representatives of a table football association, Sport Toscana Calcio Balilla in Altopascio, Tuscany.
The mayor of Altopascio, Sara D’Ambrosio, wrote on Facebook that the table was designed to be inclusive and work well for people with physical disabilities to encourage their participation in sport.
