President-elect Joe Biden will be examined by a doctor after slipping and twisting his ankle while playing with his dog Major, Biden’s transition team said Sunday.
Biden’s slip occurred on Saturday while he was playing with one of his two German Shepherds. The transition team said the president-elect will be examined by an orthopedist Sunday afternoon out of an abundance of caution.
The former vice president who turned 78 last week will become the oldest president inaugurated into office in U.S. history.
Major and Biden’s other German Shepherd, named Champ, are slated to become the first dogs in a return to tradition after the Trump family did not have a dog in the White House.
