Pope Francis is sent to the hospital in Rome

Pope Francis was taken to the Gemelli Hospital in Rome today for a medical examination.

The Italian media write that the Pope has gone to the hospital to have a check-up on his health, as he has been suffering from the flu.

The 87-year-old pope had left a note for his weekly Wednesday mass, delegating the task to an aide and telling the faithful he was not feeling well.
