Pope Francis apologises and admits he 'lost patience' after slapping a female worshipper

Pope Francis (pictured leading Mass at the Vatican today, left) issued an apology Wednesday after slapping away a woman who had forcefully grabbed his hand (right) as he greeted Catholic worshippers on New Year's Eve, confessing he had 'lost his patience'. 'It happens to me too. I apologise for the bad example given yesterday,' the head of the Catholic church said before celebrating Mass. The day after the incident, the Pope decried violence against women in a speech at the Vatican, saying that it is like profaning God. The image of Francis slapping his way free from the clutches of the admirer went viral on social media.
