Joe Biden fell trying to get off his bike while celebrating his 45th birthdayth Wedding anniversary over a weekend.

The US President and First Lady Jill were finishing a morning ride near their beach house in Delaware when he decided to bike to a crowd of well-wishers lined up along the bike path.

The 79-year-old, who was wearing a helmet, fell trying to dismount, apparently falling onto his right side and rolling onto his back.

He told reporters after Secret Service agents helped him to his feet: “I’m fine. I got my foot trapped in the toe cages.
