The Harlem Globetrotters teach Pope Francis how to spin a basketball on his fingers

With this balancing act and the Pope's smile, the Harlem Globetrotters stole the spotlight during the Pope's general audience in St. Peter's Square.

Because the team is 90-years-old, the players gave him a jersey with his name and the number 90. The Globetrotters, who are known throughout the world for skills as entertainers, essentially made him part of the team for a day.

Players taught the Pope a few moves, and he did his best to keep up.

Between the laughter and joking, one of the players thanked Pope Francis the work he does every day and jokingly told him that he could play with the jersey on.

"Thank you."
"Thank you for everything you do."

"It's for you, you can come out front and play.”

They said it is the ninth time that they met a pope. In fact, the team met with Pope John Paul II in 2000.
