Pope Francis' Instagram account reportedly 'liked' photo of scantily-clad model on the social media platform.

According to a number of reports, the Instagram account for Pope Francis apparently "liked" a photo of a lingerie model.

The photo shows model Natalia Garibotto dressed in a schoolgirl style outfit that barely covers her butt cheeks as she stands against school lockers.

In an interview, Garibotto told Barstool Sports, “My mum may hate my a** pics but the Pope be double-tapping.”

The Vatican is asking Instagram to investigate the issue. The "like" was apparently visible on November 13 before the post was 'unliked' the following day.

There's no word on when the post was first "liked."
