The 32-year-old tech billionaire said on his Facebook page it was an honour to meet the pontiff.

“We told him how much we admire his message of mercy and tenderness, and how he’s found new ways to communicate with people of every faith around the world.”

He added: “It was a meeting we’ll never forget. You can feel his warmth and kindness, and how deeply he cares about helping people.” READ MORE OF THIS REPORT
