Yep, he's to resign on the 28th of February. One can only imagine failing health.

Hard to believe he's been Pope for almost eight years now.

Does this mean that he's going to go back to being a cardinal and what about the papal ring because don't they crush them when the pope dies? I presume that he will be interned in the crypt when he eventually dies?
