President-elect Joe Biden has hairline fractures in his foot and will “likely require a walking boot for several weeks”, his doctor said in a statement on Sunday, after Biden slipped while playing with his dog, Major, on Saturday.

“Initial x-rays did not show any obvious fracture, but his clinical exam warranted more detailed imaging,” Dr Kevin O’Connor said on Sunday. “Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline fractures in the mid-foot.”

On Sunday evening, President Donald Trump tweeted, “Get well soon!”

Biden, who celebrated his 78th birthday on Nov 20, is set to be the oldest president in US history.

During the campaign, Biden’s team released a summary of his medical history, which showed the former vice-president was healthy and fit for the presidency.

The release included the results of a physical exam by O’Connor, Biden’s primary care doctor since 2009. O’Connor wrote that Biden is “a healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency”.

The Biden family has two dogs, Major and Champ, both German Shepherds.
