Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of a Brazillian bishop who quit after a video surfaced of him semi-naked with another man.

Tomé Ferreira da Silva, formerly bishop of the Diocese of São José do Rio Preto, had acknowledged that a minute-long video leaked onto social media was of him.

The footage began with a photograph of the 60-year-old wearing a mitre, with a caption naming him. It then reportedly cut to a recording of him on a video call with another man.

He can be seen wearing a striped jumper in the video, according to Diário Da Região.

Da Silva declined to comment on the content of the clip when pressed by the news outlet. In response, he said he would be seeking guidance from his attorney and the Civil Police, Brazil’s state police force, believing it was leaked by “someone I live with”.
