An iPad that belonged to Argentina-born Pope Francis went under the hammer for $30,500 on Tuesday, autioneers in Uruguay said.

Montevideo-based auction house Castells said the winning bid was placed by telephone.

Local media threw a spotlight on the iPad last year.

The pope gave it - complete with its His Holiness Francis label and a Vatican certificate of authenticity - to an Uruguayan priest as a gift.

It ended up being donated to a local school by the priest, before being auctioned off to raise money.
