Le Figaro says the Pope Francis gets up at 4:30 am and that he is not to be called Francis I, the Vatican insists, and certainly not to be confused with the French king Francis I.
Also, it says that he is missing a piece of the lung, not the whole lung and that while he has never revealed the nature of his illness, specialists think it was TB. Le Figaro also says that he withdrew from the 2005 race with Ratzinger citing poor health and that his health is indeed fragile. OTOH, the Vatican spokesman says that "those who know him, had always seen him in good health."

A round-about spokesperson answer, if you ask me. Regardless, I hope he stays healthy and strong. He is going to be busy.
