The Presidential Office of the Philippines revealed on the 17th that President Duterte had fallen down driving a motorcycle in Manila on the 16th night. A spokesman for President Panero explained, “After falling off the bike, I reached my shoes and fell down.” The elbows and knees were scratched and bruised.
Mr. Christopher Go, Senator, who is close to Mr. Duterte, released a photo with Mr. Duterte across the motorcycle on Facebook on the 17th. I brought it.
Duterte is known for his love for big bikes. It is also called “Philippine Dirty Harry” during the mayor era of southern Davao, and there is an anecdote that he went to crack down on criminals with his motorcycle.
However, there are frequent theories about poor health about Duterte, who is 74 years old. On the 5th of this month, he had just announced in his speech that he suffered from “myasthenia gravis”, a weakening of muscle strength. (Hanoi = Reiko Suzuki)
