After weeks of speculation and plenty of pre-conclave meetings, the conclave has selected a new pope. Take a look at what's involved in the process of choosing a pope.
Traditionally, there is one ballot taken on the first afternoon of the conclave and four ballots taken each day after that, two each morning and two each afternoon. A new pope must receive votes from two-thirds of the participating cardinals plus one to be elected.
