Pope Francis got a cut on his brow and blood on his white cape on Sunday when he bumped into the window of his Popemobile while waving to admirers in Colombia.
Francis, 80, was standing up in the specially designed vehicle during a procession through the Caribbean city of Cartagena when the vehicle braked sharply.
Television pictures showed him colliding with the glass-and-white frame of the vehicle's covered platform, and then being assisted by his bodyguard.
After being helped from the car, he was seen with a bruise on his cheek and a small dressing on his brow, but still smiling.
The incident occurred on the last day of the pope's four-city Colombian tour. He was due to fly back to Rome later on Sunday.
