3. He is passionate about soccer- a proud supporter of San Lorenzo de Almagro Football club from his home neighborhood.
The Pope is a huge football fan and usually offers as gifts football shirts,
mainly from his favorite team, San Lorenzo de Almagro.
4. Before he became a Jesuit, Pope Francis worked as a bouncer at a bar in Buenos Aires to pay for his studies.

5. Has an achy back due to sciatica which is one explanation why He does not bow or genuflect before the Tabernacle, but does so in dealing with the public as necessary. 

6.  Pope Francis briefly owned what became the most expensive 21st-century Harley-Davidson motorbike in the world. After he gave blessings to hundreds of Harley owners and their rides in St. Peter’s Square, the Pontiff was given a a brand new Dyna Super Glide Harley-Davidson motorcycle that the pope autographed and put up for auction, raising a hefty $326,000 for a Rome soup kitchen and homeless shelter.

7. Pope Francis is a legal citizen of three different countries. Apart from Argentina where he was born and raised, he is also a citizen of Italy (because of a legal tradition and his Italian parentage) and since Vatican is as a sovereign entity with the Pope as its leader, it makes three countries in total.
