Fractures are routinely a concern as people age, but Biden’s injury seemed relatively mild based on what the doctor said in the statement and the planned treatment.

The 78-year-old Biden will become the oldest president in US history when he takes office in January and frequently rejected questions about his age when he was campaigning.

Reporters covering the president-elect’s activities were not allowed to see Biden’s entry into the office despite multiple requests to do so.

When he left the site to go to the CT center, Biden was visibly limping, although he was walking without crutches and without assistance.

Biden was injured while playing with Major, one of the two dogs in the family. They adopted Major in 2018, and acquired their first dog, Champ, after the 2008 election. The Bidens have said they will bring their dogs to the White House, and they also plan to get a cat.
