VATICAN CITY, March 21 (UPI) -- The 4-year-old grandson of the president of Malta met Pope Francis at the Vatican and presented the pontiff with a plastic dinosaur as a gift.

Luca Abela, 4, grandson of Maltese President George Abela, met the pope Friday alongside his two siblings, the president's wife and the head of state's two adult sons, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Friday.

The young boy presented Pope Francis with a gift, a plastic dinosaur, and the pontiff took time to play with the boy and his siblings after meeting with the adults, ANSA said.
