The Province - - THE LAST PAGE / SPORTS -

The Brazil­ian soc­cer club dev­as­tated by an air­plane crash in Colom­bia last year has met with Pope Fran­cis at the Vatican.

Pope Fran­cis gave Chapecoense a spe­cial wel­come and posed for pic­tures with the team on Wed­nes­day. When the flight went down in Novem­ber, all but six of the 77 play­ers, of­fi­cials and jour­nal­ists on board were killed. Three play­ers sur­vived. Two of them were at the Vatican.
