NEWARK, Delaware (Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden twisted his ankle after slipping while playing with his dog, his office said on Sunday.

 

In a brief statement, Biden's office said the incident happened on Saturday and that the 78-year-old Democrat would be examined by an orthopedist on Sunday "out of an abundance of caution."

 

Biden later visited an orthopedic specialist in Newark, Delaware. Reporters traveling with him were held on a bus and could not see the president-elect enter the building.

 

Biden will be the oldest person to assume the American presidency when he is sworn in next year and his health is likely to be watched closely by allies and opponents alike.

Better a twisted ankle than a twisted brain!

My sympathies to President Elect Joe Biden, twisting ankle is painful.    

FDR was severely disabled from polio. I'm sure President Elect Biden can weather a minor ankle injury. Also its comforting that we will have a president that enjoys playing with his rescued dogs  A re

From what I read and the video watched this morning via MSN there is something of Democrat Party storm* coming (*my words) where I think his twisted ankle will be the least of his problems. As for the ankle, keep it well supported and try to walk as normal as the injury will allow. With a bit of massage and gentle rotation, and one good foot. you'll soon be fine.

I'm not making fun of being 78 yrs old. I hope to live that long but it's still funny that the future president of the greatest country in the world was injured playing with a dog. Get used to the insults.
