Pope Francis received a surprise gift on Tuesday when a little girl crawled under the barrier at an Abu Dhabi stadium and ran to hand him a piece of paper.
The young girl dodged past security and was greeted by the pontiff, who could be seen bending down from the popemobile to speak to her.
A second girl ran out of the crowd and was also greeted by the pope.
Security guards were then seen escorting the two girls back to their families.
The incident happened as the pope was entering the Zayed Sports City Stadium to celebrate Mass.
Authorities in the United Arab Emirates say some 180,000 people attended the Mass by Pope Francis, the first on the Arabian Peninsula.
Officials said 135,000 tickets were given out for seats in the stadium, and throngs of people crowded around it from the outside to catch a glimpse of the pope as he travelled by in his open-top popemobile.
