President-elect Joe Biden has hairline fractures in his foot that will require him to wear a walking boot for several weeks after he slipped while playing with his dog Major, his doctor said Sunday, APA reports citing New York Times.

Biden, 78, was playing with Major on Saturday when he slipped and hurt his ankle, according to his transition team.

He was taken to to Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists in Newark, Delaware, for an assessment by an orthopedic doctor shortly after 4 p.m. on Sunday.

In an earlier statement, Biden's primary care doctor, Kevin O'Connor, said that an initial x-ray did not show any obvious fractures and that he had only sprained his right foot.
