Hands-off! Pope grabbed by woman on NYE

Pope Francis had to free himself after a woman grabbed his arm when he was greeting the crowds in St Peter's Square on New Year's Eve.

Having missed out on a handshake, the women decided to steal one instead. Francis then exclaimed and struck her hand twice before eventually freeing his hand. He then walked off with a frown while security spoke to the over-eager woman.
