Pope Francis, leader of the Roman Catholic Church has revealed that he has not watched Television since July 15, 1990.The pontiff did not disclose the last program he watched but he said he promised the Virgin Mary he would not watch TV again.

Pope Francis, expressed how honouring his promise to the Virgin Mary has kept him from watching his favourite soccer team, Buenos Aires-based San Lorenzo. Surprisingly, he said, a member of the Swiss Guard updates him on the scores and fixtures.

The Argentinian Pope added, he does not surf the internet either and only reads  one newspaper for ten minutes every morning. He noted,” Since accepting the role I have missed being able to walk in the street and go for a pizza. Take-away is not the same, you have to go there”.
