Traditionally the popes never expressed any particular sympathies or interest in the Olympic movement.In 1960 however, Pope John XXIII willingly blessed the crowd who had come to attend the games held in the Italian capital. The ceremony took place in Saint Peter's Square. The present incumbent of the throne of Saint Peter, Pope John Paul II, who takes an obvious interest in sport avoids showing any interest in the Olympic games apart from warning sports-persons away from using banned substances.
