Joe Biden has fallen off his bike while cycling near his holiday home in Rehoboth, Delaware.

He lost his footing while stopping to greet members of the public at 9.40 on Saturday morning.

The 79-year-old president tumbled after his foot got stuck in the pedal toe cage.

He swiftly got up, telling onlookers “I’m fine”.

There were no signs of the president suffering any cuts or grazes.

Mr Biden, wearing a grey t-shirt, navy blue shorts, blue Nike training shoes and a cycling helmet, had set off 11 minutes earlier accompanied by his security detail.

He breezed past members of the press pool when he set off, unaccompanied by the First Lady, Jill Biden.

The Bidens are understood to be keen cyclists, often taking to their bikes – while in Delaware.

In the past, he has been seen riding a Trek FX hybrid, an aluminium bike with plenty of gears making it capable of handling a variety of terrains.

Following his fall, Mr Biden spoke to members of the public and then amid the scramble, the press.

He said he would be talking to the Chinese leader X—Jinping soon. Asked about trade tariffs, he responded: “I’m in the process of making up my mind.”

On guns, he hailed legislation passed in Delaware.

“In Delaware, I am. Did you see what they did in Delaware? Passed an assault weapons ban. They did what I did years ago. But I am happy with the progress.”

He then set off. “Alright guys, see you,” he said.

The White House played down the incident. 

An official said: “As the President said, his foot got caught on the pedal while dismounting and he is fine. 

“No medical attention is needed. The President looks forward to spending the rest of the day with his family.”
