20-year old Canadian tennis star/well-publicized Belieber Eugenie Bouchard had some free time in Rome this week after her first round loss in the Italian Open, so she decided to head over to Vatican City where she took a selfie with the Pope, sort of. Tennis: Q&A with fast-rising Eugenie Bouchard

While Pope Francis doesn't seem to be aware the photograph is being taken, the 17th ranked Bouchard still gets to check the all important papal selfie off her bucket list. The Bishop of Rome is a very busy man, and only has time to personally meet with top ten players, like fellow Argentine Juan Martin del Potro.
