Pope Francis slaps pilgrim's hand after she yanks his arm

Pope Francis has showed his displeasure towards a visitor in St Peter's Square on New Year's Eve.

He had been greeting pilgrims when he admonished a woman and slapped her hand after she grabbed his hand and yanked him towards her.

On 1 January the Pope admitted he had "lost patience", saying: "We lose patience many times. It happens to me too. I apologise for the bad example given yesterday."
