Pope Francis holds an Olympic T-shirt with his name on it given to him in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Thursday. Francis blessed the Olympic flag, visited a slum and addressed young Roman Catholics in Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana beach on Thursday, as Latin America's first pope made his inaugural international trip as pontiff. The shirt was given to him by Carlos Arthur Nuzman, president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee.
