O The 87-year-old Pope has had a “mild cold” for several days, the Vatican note said.

The Pope’s white Fiat 500 left the hospital located in the center of the Italian capital at around 12:00 local time (11:00 in Lisbon), under police escort, according to a photographer from the AFP news agency.

Early in the morning, the Pope attended the weekly general audience at the Vatican.

“I’m still a little cold,” said Francisco, who arrived in a wheelchair at the hearing, held in the Paulo VI room.

One of his advisors, Filippo Ciampanelli, read a large part of Francis’ speech today, as has happened on other occasions when the Pope was ill.

On Monday, the Vatican revealed that “mild flu-like symptoms persisted, although without fever”, but several planned audiences were suspended as a precaution.

On Sunday, the Pope celebrated the traditional Angelus prayer and spoke before thousands of faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square, in the Vatican.

At the end of November, the Pope was diagnosed with bronchitis and had to cancel some events. Francis had to celebrate the Angelus in private and was also replaced by a collaborator in reading his speeches.

To allow for his recovery, the Argentine Pope canceled his planned trip to Dubai in early December to participate in the Climate Summit.

He later recovered completely and, on December 8, went to Plaza de España, in Rome, for the traditional tribute to the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception.

Francisco has had a series of health problems in recent years, mainly with his knees, hips and colon, having undergone abdominal surgery last June.
