Holy Tennis, Batman!

In a new, um, something (low? high?)... for the Italian obsession with Msgr Georg Ganswein, the Pope's private secretary, Chi, the magazine of Corriere della Sera, has been granted unprecedented access to the 49 year-old secretary's life, both behind the scenes and in an interview.

The piece is called "The Hidden Face of Don Georg." While I haven't seen it in full, I'm told the magazine's editor, Maria Agnese, said that she gave it the cover page as she thinks Ganswein "divinely handsome."

Remember, this is Italy.... Where these things happen all the time.
