MANILA- President Rodrigo Duterte went for a motorcycle ride late Wednesday night, and figured in a minor accident.
The 74-year-old chief executive was seen driving a dirt bike around the Malacañang complex, still in his barong, in a video sent by his longtime aide and now Senator Christopher “Bong” Go.
The video was taken before the President fell off a 650 cc dirt bike after he made a sharp turn, landing on his left elbow, Go said.
As of Thursday morning, Duterte is resting at Bahay ng Pagbabago in Malacañang, Go said.
Duterte’s spokesman Salvador Panelo assured the public on Thursday that the President is fine since he only sustained “light bruises and slight scratches.”
“We assure our people that the President is fine, and his recovery entails no major medical procedure,” Panelo said, noting that the President does not need to see a doctor.
