The Pope’s Instagram account seems to have enjoyed the image of a scantily clad bikini model showing her in suspenders while she appears to be putting books in a school locker.
Natalia Garibotto, who has 2.3 million followers on Instagram, posted the photo of her wearing a barely visible red tartan skirt and white crop top on the social media site.
But one of the legions of fans of the Brazilian model saw a ‘like’ from an unusual source.
The screenshot appears to show that Pope’s official Instagram account @franciscus likes the image – although it is not clear if this is a fake account.
However, the message no longer appears to have a “like” of the account.
The 27-year-old model seemed impressed to apparently have a fan in high places, and she is said to have said, “At least I’m going to heaven” after the screenshot was widely shared.
The “like” got mixed reactions, some were shocked by it, while another joked, “now that’s my kind of pope.”
Natalia seemed to be enjoying her fame and tweeted a new photo, in the same outfit, but draped over a desk.
She captioned the new image, which received more than 140,000 likes: “On this day I was blessed, you could be too.”
