Joe Biden was pedalling near his holiday home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, when he fell off his bike.
When the 79-year-old president attempted to dismount to talk to the 30 or so people waiting for him, his foot got jammed in the pedal toe cage and he fell.
As he fell, the stunned onlookers gasped. President Biden was immediately rescued by secret service officials.
He quickly stood up, assuring the audience, “I’m fine,” as the gathering was ordered to disperse by security personnel. There was no evidence that the president had been injured in any way.
After standing up, the president joked with the crowd, making light of the mishap. He told a well-wisher that running the nation was just like any other job.
