Pope Francis clearly lost his temper with a person who pulled on him so hard that he fell onto a man in a wheelchair.
Video footage showed the Pontiff , who is usually calm and accommodating with his admirers, was walking in an stadium in Mexico when he stopped to greet a crowd of hundreds.
Two arms appeared to reach out and grab him but the person would not let go, even after the pope lost his balance and his chest was pressing on the disabled man’s head.
Aides and security men stopped the Pope from falling to the ground.
After he returned to an upright position, his face turned angry.
He looked at the person, raised his voice and said twice in Spanish: “Don’t be selfish!”
It was not clear if the person who pulled the pope was a man or a woman.
Francis, the first Latin American pope, is traveling to some of the poorest and most violent corners of Mexico on a six-day trip to bring a message of hope to millions of poor people.
Earlier this week Pope Francis looked delighted after he was presented with an enormous white sombrero.
He received the gift from a Mexican journalist aboard an airplane to Havana. The headwear even features a portrait of the Pontiff.
The Holy See arrived in the capital of Cuba to meet the head of the Russian Orthodox Church.
Their meeting was the first encounter in history between a Roman Catholic pope and a Russian Orthodox patriarch.
