Pope falls while conducting mass

RT PLAY:-Pope Francis has fallen during a visit to Czestochowa, Poland. The pontiff was walking on stage, about to address the waiting crowd, but suddenly fell.

The 79-year-old pope, who hails from Argentina, was quickly helped to his feet by other religious figures. He subsequently took to his seat, continued the Mass and read his homily normally.

The shrine is home the Black Madonna, which is a Byzantine icon from sometime between the sixth and ninth centuries. It was brought to Poland around 600 years ago. The icon is painted on wood and covered with silver and jewels.

    Aa why did he fell? Is it the question of not being in good health?
