BBC Photo Caption References 'Pope Francis (R)' Meeting President Obama

Earlier today, the Facebook page for BBC World News posted a captionfest item featuring a photo of President Obama and Pope Francis shaking hands. Curiously, the photo caption begins, "Pope Francis (R) and US President Barack Obama shake hands after exchanging gifts during a private audience on March 27, 2014 at the Vatican." [see screen capture -- taken around 10 p.m. Eastern -- below page break]

To be fair, Pope Francis is on the right in the photo, but it's still incredibly odd as the only subjects in focus in the photo are the president and the pontiff, and it's not like the average reader would be confused as to which is which.
