Joe Biden falls from bicycle, recovers unhurt

US President Joe Biden fell from his bicycle which he was riding near his beachside home in Delaware Saturday morning but recovered unhurt.

The 79-year-old president got up immediately after the fall, and said "I'm good", a White House pool report showed.

He was biking with First Lady Jill Biden in a state park near his home when he stopped to talk to onlookers and suffered a fall.

He told a small crowd of well-wishers and reporters that he had lost his balance as he set one foot on the ground and tried to free another out of a bike clip.

There were no visible scrapes or bruises from the fall,  a White House pool report said.

"No medical attention is needed," a White House official said. "The President looks forward to spending the rest of the day with his family."

Biden is the oldest US President and his health is a subject of constant attention amid speculations about whether he will seek a second term in 2024.

In November 2020, shortly after winning the elections but before taking office, he had broken a foot while playing with his pet German Shepherd.

However, Biden's doctor had given him a clean bill of health, a year later in November 2021, describing him as "healthy" and "vigorous."
