The doctor of US President-Elect, Joe Biden, Dr Kevin O’Connor has revealed he slipped and twisted his ankle while playing with his dog, Major, on Sunday, November 29, 2020.
He suffered hairline fractures in the mid-foot area, according to a CT scan.
Due to this sad development, H.E Biden will “likely require a walking boot” for several weeks.
“Initial x-rays did not show any obvious fracture, but his clinical exam warranted more detailed imaging,” the President-Elect’s doctor said in a statement.
“Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot. It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” he added.
According to a report, Mr Biden visited Delaware Orthopedic Specialists in Newark, Delaware, on Sunday afternoon, “out of an abundance of caution.”
We wish him a speedy recovery.
