Maradona and football stars meet the Pope

The Pope met with international football stars in the Vatican on Monday ahead of the Match for Peace, an inter-religious charity match.

Among the players were Diego Maradona, who gave Pope Francis an Argentina team shirt.

The idea for the game came after a meeting between Javier Zanetti and the Pope last year.
