He is not the only or the last who will receive the highest Rank in Taekwondo, because the WT and the Kukkiwon are following this Strategy to reward people whom they think they did good to Taekwondo, or get support from those who can be more helpful for Taekwondo purposes.  

On May 10, WTF President Chungwon Choue, accompanied by President of the Italian Taekwondo Federation Angelo Cito, was received by Pope Francis in the Saint Peter’s Square in Vatican City. With them were Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the Holy See Jong-hyu Jeong and Honorary President of the Italian Taekwondo Federation Young-gil Park.
After a fraternal greeting, Choue awarded the Pope an honorary 10th dan black belt – the highest rank in taekwondo.
