The elderly are fragile. And, of course, the obligatory opaqueness we have come to expect from Biden.
Initially, Dr Kevin O’Connor said Biden ‘sustained a sprain of his right foot’ and that there was ‘no obvious fracture’.
But a subsequent CT scan ‘confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot,’ according to a statement from O’Connor.
‘It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,’ O’Conner added.
Biden’s office said he was taken to the doctor ‘out of an abundance of caution’.
Reporters covering the president-elect were not afforded the opportunity to see Biden enter the doctor’s office, despite multiple requests.
