— -- Pope Francis -- basketball wiz?

The pope mixed it up with some of the Harlem Globetrotters at his weekly general audience in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican.

The Globetrotters even walked Francis through how to spin a basketball on his fingertip.

The basketball entertainers gave him a jersey with the number 90 and his name, "Pope Francis," in a frame.

The Harlem Globetrotters are currently in Italy as part of their 2015 international tour. They will be playing in Italy, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Finland.
