Pope Recovering From Colon Surgery

Pope Francis has undergone successful surgery to treat a colon problem at a hospital in Rome, according to the Vatican.

Vatican spokesman, Matteo Bruni said the 84-year-old “responded well” to the treatment, which was performed under general anesthetic.

It is the first time pope Francis has been admitted to hospital since his election in 2013.

Earlier on Sunday, the Argentine Pontiff addressed thousands of visitors in St peter’s square.

Born in 1936 in Buenos Aires, Francis lost part of his right lung at the age of 21.

He also suffers from a hip problem and sciatica, which causes pain that radiates from the lower back to the legs.

In 2014, he had to cancel a number of engagements because of a reported stomach ailment.
