John Paul is back in hospital.

The Pope was taken back to hospital today following a relapse two weeks after being treated for flu and breathing difficulties. The 84-year-old Pontiff was taken to the Gemelli Polyclinic hospital in Rome. John Paul had been convalescing after his discharge 13 days ago and appeared to be making a strong recovery, appearing twice at the window of his Vatican studio to greet pilgrims.

Yesterday the Pope wheezed and looked gaunt but managed to make his longest public appearance since leaving the hospital.

The Pope was due to attend a Vatican ceremony today for candidates of sainthood, but papal officials cancelled his appearance at the last minute.
