U.S. President-elect Joe Biden suffered a foot injury over the weekend while playing with one of his dogs.
Biden's doctor, Kevin O'Connor, stated on Sunday that a CT scan confirmed "hairline fractures" in the president-elect's "mid-foot," and will "likely require a walking boot for several weeks."
He was injured on Saturday and visited an orthopedist in Newark, Delaware, for an examination the following afternoon, according to his office.
Reporters covering Biden said he was visibly limping when he left the doctor's office, but walked without a crutch or other aid.
O'Connor said, "Initial x-rays did not show any obvious fracture, but his clinical exam warranted more detailed imaging."
Biden, at 78, will be the oldest president when he's inaugurated in January, and his doctor has described him as being "healthy, vigorous" and "fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency."
