Meet the Pope's new best friend

An adorable boy refused to leave the stage when Pope Francis was addressing thousands of pilgrims in St Peter's

Square. The little 'boy in yellow', who was part of group of children invited to sit next to the Pope during the address on Oct 26, ran up to the pontiff's side and clung to him throughout the event.
