US President Joe Biden has tripped and fallen during a graduation ceremony at the US Air Force academy.
The American president, 80, was quickly helped up by three people, and walked back to his seat unassisted following the incident in Colorado.
The White House said Thursday that the president tripped over a sandbag and that he was not injured by the fall.
Biden delivered the Air Force Academy’s commencement address earlier in the day.
“He’s fine. There was a sandbag on stage while he was shaking hands,” White House communications director Ben LaBolt tweeted.
