POPE BENEDICT XVI was hospitalised on Friday (17Jul09), after he slipped and fractured his wrist during a holiday in Italy.
The head of the Catholic church was on a break in the Alps when he fell in the bathroom of his chalet, injuring his arm.
The 82 year old still "celebrated mass and had breakfast" before walking to a local hospital with an aide, according to a Vatican spokesperson.
Father Federico Lombardi adds, "He slipped in his bath this morning. He was taken to hospital for check-ups. It's nothing serious."
The Pontiff had his wrist put in a cast by doctors at the medical facility in Aosta, northern Italy.
