Pope Francis has revealed he once worked as a nightclub bouncer in his native Argentina.

The Pope spoke about his life working the doors at a venue in Buenos Aires during a visit in 2013 to a church in a working class suburb of Rome.

The pontiff also talked about his experiences sweeping floors and working in a laboratory as a teenager, according to Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.

Pope Francis spent four hours chatting to followers at the church of San Cirillo Alessandrino after a Mass celebration.

He did not go into details about his career as a bouncer or what experiences it had brought to his current job as head of the Roman Catholic Church.
