Rome, May 15 (EFE).- Argentine tennis star Juan Martin del Potro, who is taking part in this week's Rome Masters event, met Wednesday with Pope Francis I at the Vatican.
"Today I was able to meet and talk with Pope Francis I at the Vatican. It was a unique experience for me. I'll never forget it," the 2009 U.S. Open champion, who describes himself as a devoted Catholic, said on Twitter.
The 76-year-old Francis, the first pope from the Americas, was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in Buenos Aires and was formerly the archbishop of the Argentine capital.
