POPE Benedict XVI was looking for a light switch in the bedroom of his Alpine chalet when he tripped and broke his wrist while on holiday ten days ago, according to the Vatican.

Papal spokesman the Rev Federico Lombardi yesterday said the Pope, 82, had stumbled while searching for the light switch in the unfamiliar room at the mountain house in Les Combes.
