POPE Francis is under medical supervision after claiming he is in contact with angels.
The Pope, who leads more than 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide, has been forced to cancel all public engagements while undergoing psychiatric tests.
A Vatican spokesman said: “For a man in his position to believe he is contact with a supernatural community of giant fairies is clearly very worrying.
“Apparently he bases all his decisions on one very old book which he claims holds the answers to everything.
“I asked what it said about repairing the carburettor of a 1965 Fiat 850 and he went blank, so there we are.”
Senior cardinals are considering a range of treatment options, including experimental drug therapy and massive electric shocks.
