President-elect Joe Biden twists ankle while playing with dog Major -

Joe Biden’s doctor said on Sunday US time that the president-elect had sustained a sprain of his right foot after twisting his ankle while playing with his dog, Major.

“Initial X-rays are reassuring that there is no obvious fracture and he will be getting an additional CT for more detailed imaging,” Dr Kevin O’Connor said in a statement.

The statement came a few hours after Mr Biden’s team confirmed his injury, saying that the 78-year-old twisted his ankle while playing with his dog Major and would be examined by an orthopaedist “out of an abundance of caution”.

A Biden spokesperson said that arrangements were made for the president-elect to “receive an x-ray and then additional CT Sunday afternoon … to avoid disrupting scheduled appointments on Monday.”

Meanwhile, US reporter Molly Nagle said in a tweet Mr Biden has “small hairline fractures” in his foot and that it was expected he would require a “walking boot” for several weeks.

Reporters covering the president-elect were not afforded the opportunity to see Mr Biden enter the doctor’s office, despite multiple requests.

Leaving the doctor’s office to head to an imaging centre for his CT scan, Mr Biden was visibly limping, though he walked without a crutch or other aid.

Mr Biden was still under examination more than two hours after arriving at the office Sunday afternoon.

Major is one of Joe and Jill Biden’s two German shepherds and will be the first rescue dog to live in the White House. The Bidens adopted him from the Delaware Humane Society in 2018. They have had their other dog, Champ, since 2008.
