US President Joe Biden was riding a bicycle near his beach house in Delaware state on Saturday morning, but did not suffer any injuries.
A video from the White House Pool Report shows the 79-year-old president getting up shortly after a fall. Then he says: “I am good.”
He was biking with First Lady Jill Biden at a state park near their beach home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and stopped to talk to onlookers when he fell.
The president told a small crowd of well-wishers and journalists that he had lost his balance while trying to take a leg out of a bike clip.
