Pope Francis will not travel to Scotland for the UN's climate conference, the Vatican has confirmed.
He has recently undergone colon surgery in Rome.
On Friday, the Vatican said its delegation would be led instead by Cardinal Parolin, its secretary of state.
The climate summit is due to be held at the Scottish Exhibition Campus in Glasgow from October 31 until 12 November.
Pope Francis was expected to be among about 120 world leaders due to attend the event to lay out plans to cut emissions causing climate change.
Organisers have confirmed that the summit will be attended by the Queen, and US President Joe Biden has said he is "anxious" to be there.
