The new Pope was appointed yesterday, Argentinean Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

Within two hours of the announcement, Argentinean league club San Lorenzo had published photos on its website of the religious leader holding up the club colours above his head.

A fellow fan of the club, architect Oscar Lucchini, confirmed the link: “He lives in a permanent state of suffering for San Lorenzo.”

Nothing like a club cashing in on the election of Argentina’s first Pope.
