AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli is happy he met Pope Francis earlier this season.

Balotelli admits he's sometimes turns to God to calm himself down.

"I believe in God and at certain times that helps me calm down. It meant a lot for me to meet the Pope.

"I learned a lot from him. He's a man who is deeply inspiring. It is an experience I will never forget."
