Pope Francis' favorite soccer team in Argentina plans to send him a personalized jersey with his name on it.
The San Lorenzo Soccer Club in Buenos Aires announced on its website on March 18 that it was inspired to make the customized jersey because of "the repercussion that the election of the former Archbishop of the city of Buenos Aires as the supreme leader of the Catholic religion has had around the world."
The jersey will have the Pope's name in Spanish, "Francisco," on the back.
In a recent letter to the Pope, who is an avid San Lorenzo fan, the soccer club expressed its joy over his election "as the Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church."
