by Hannah Tooley

In an interview with an Argentinian newspaper, La Voz Del Pueblo, he also said he had never used the internet and only reads one newspaper a day for around ten minutes.

The 78-year-old also admitted that he relies on a member of the Swiss guard to find out if his football team has won or lost.

His reason was simply TV "is not for me."

When asked what he misses about his life before papacy, along with freedom and pizza, he said "to go outside."

"That much I long for - the tranquillity of walking through the streets, or to go to a pizzeria to eat a good pizza."

Pope Francis took over at the Vatican in 2013.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
