Robes for a new Pope: Will he be S, M or L?

It has yet to be decided who the new Pope will be, but the robes that the next leader of the Catholic Church will wear have already been designed and made in Italy.

Gammarelli, a tailor's shop in Rome that has served the Vatican for centuries, has unveiled three hand-sewn white papal cassocks - in small, medium and large sizes.

Currently on display in the shop's window, they will be delivered ahead of the conclave to decide the new Pope.
