Man Arrested After Streaking Naked Through St. Peter's Basilica

There's a certain dress code when visiting St Peter's Basilica in Rome: shorts, skirts and vest tops are frowned upon.

One man decided to flout the rule entirely though and turned up to the Pope's residence wearing a back-pack and a pair of runners.

According Metro UK, he walked up to the high altar, where Pope Francis usually delivers his sermons before he was unceremoniously ejected from the building.

Before this, he was spotted by Edoardo Buffoni, who just so happens to be editor of Radio Capital, a station that broadcasts from Rome.
