Benedict XVI was one of the oldest new popes in history when he was elected in 2005
Last year the Pope started using a cane on occasions and recently he appeared to have trouble reading the text of an address he delivered in Rome.
There was no immediate comment from the Vatican.
More to follow.

Pope says he is unable to continue in office due to advanced age, resigning in full freedom
|Re: Pope Benedict To Resign by Nonybb: 12:34pm On Feb 11, 2013|
Pope Benedict XVI says he would resign on feb 28, CNN announces this morning. The pope is saying for no known reasons as to why he is resigning. The reporters saying "he is resigning in full freedom". He is the oldest Pope the catholics have had in history of papacy. The question begging for answers now is, will Nigeria and perphaps Africans have the prospects of having the new pope among themselves? The new pope would not be choosen until an election is done within the vatican. His resignation is not attributed to any illness or incapacitation.

I hope our civil servants who have been celebrating their 55th birthday anniversaries for the last 10 years and the African megalomaniacs (Robert Mugabe, Sam Nujoma, Issa Hayatou, Paul Biya and co) learn a thing or two on how to bow out gracefully. Tua perfrui, Euge Dignum Quiete, sanctitas tua!!!!!

Pope Benedict to resign February 28
UPDATED: Feb 11, 2013 11:37 GMT
Pope Benedict XVI will resign on February 28, his spokesman Father Federico Lombardi told CNN Monday.
The 85-year-old pope is resigning "because of advanced age," Benedict told the cardinals of the Catholic Church on Monday.
"Strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me," the pope told the cardinals, according to the Vatican.
The last pope to resign was Gregory XII in 1415. He did so to end a civil war within the church in which more than one man claimed to be pope.
Benedict, the 265th pope, is the sixth German to serve as pope and the first since the 11th century. He became pope in 2005.
