Pope Francis is now officially a baller.
The Harlem Globetrotters paid a visit to the Vatican on Wednesday, and they performed a few tricks with the pope during his weekly meet-and-greet with the public.
At one point he tried to spin a basketball on his finger, but it didn’t stay up for very long. And the second attempt was even worse.
But he appeared to enjoy the whole experience nonetheless.
The team also gave him a jersey with his name and the number 90 on it (because the Globetrotters are 90 years old), and they said that he could play with them as an honorary member.
Pope John Paul II was also made an honorary Golbetrotter back in 2000.
The Globetrotters posted some more images of their meeting with Francis on Twitter.
