President-elect Joe Biden will likely need to wear a boot over the next several weeks after he was diagnosed with a foot fracture on Sunday, according to the Democrat’s doctor.

Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the president-elect’s physician who also serves as the director of executive medicine at GW Medical Faculty Associates, said in a statement that a CT scan “confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot.”

“It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” O’Connor said.

Biden, who at age 78 will be the oldest president to enter office, fell while playing with his dog on Saturday.

President Donald Trump, who still refuses to recognize Biden’s electoral victory and has instead been baselessly insisting for weeks that the former vice president and the Democrats cheated in the election, retweeted NBC News’ video of Biden departing an orthopedic specialist’s office in Newark, Delaware on Sunday.

“Get well soon!” Trump tweeted.
