President Rodrigo Duterte showed on Thursday to Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon Lopez the scratches he suffered from a motorcycle accident.
Duterte, a known motorcycle rider and enthusiast, attended the 45th Philippine Business Conference and Expo a day after falling from a motorcycle at the Presidential Security Group compound.
In a media briefing, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo downplayed the President’s motorcycle mishap, saying that he only suffered bruises and scratches.
“The President was reaching for his shoe when he fell off his motorcycle that resulted in a minor injury, particularly light bruises and slight scratches, to his elbow and knee,” Panelo said.
He added that the President’s recovery “entails no major medical procedure.”
