Pope Francis has appointed 13 new cardinals, including the first African American to hold the position.

Wilton Gregory was imitated at a ceremony in the Vatican, where participants wore face masks and some appeared via a video link.

The 72-year-old Archbishop of Washington, DC, was announced as one of the new cardinals, last month.

The Cardinals in Red are the largest clergy in the Catholic Church, after the Pope himself.
