Jorge Mario Bergoglio has come out of literally nowhere (Argentina) to become the first new Pope since the last one.

But what do we really know about the man, the priest, the Jim Bowen lookalike?

Fortunately, we know at least 10 things. Click through our slideshow of fun/possibly untrue facts to find out exactly what they are...

  • Fun Fact 1!

    He grew up in the only black-and-white family in Argentina. While all their friends went around in colour, the Bergoglio family were entirely made up of shades of grey - a fact which baffles scientists to this day.

  • Fun Fact 2!

    While he was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio, he chose the name Francis as his papal name in honour of his favourite jazz singer, Frank 'Francis Albert' Sinatra.

  • Fun Fact 3!

    He has his own personal microphone holder (left), who accompanies him on all official engagements.

  • Fun Fact 4!

    He is the first old, white, male Pope since the last one.

  • Fun Fact 5!

    Trained as a chemist, he turned to a life of faith as a young man, saying that science had "failed to give a good enough explanation" as to why his hair was already receding.

  • Fun Fact 6!

    He rose to fame after coming third in the Argentinian version of 'Celebrity Big Brother'. Here he was greeting fans on eviction night.

  • Fun Fact 7!

    An avid sports fan, he supports San Lorenzo FC, plays golf, and likes to claim that Andy Murray is Argentinian when he's winning.

  • Fun Fact 8!

    He's down-to-earth. He takes the bus to work, cooks his own meals and likes to spend his spare time graffitiing walls and shutters in Buenos Aires. (His tag? 'Po-Fran'.)

  • Fun Fact 9!

    Fridge magnets with images of his face are legal currency in the Vatican, and have been for some time on the Falkland Islands.

  • Fun Fact 10!

    At a mere four inches, he's the smallest Pope to ever be elected.
