U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry broke his leg Sunday while cycling in the French Alps in Scionzier, France.

John Kerry Breaks Leg

Kerry, 71, crashed his bike during the outing, which led to his broken leg. Paramedics and physicians were in Kerry’s motorcade when the accident occurred, enabling the politician to receive immediate medical attention.

“The Secretary was transported via medical helicopter to Hospital University Geneva, where he is currently being evaluated,” Kerry’s spokesperson said in a statement. “Secretary Kerry is stable and likely suffered a leg injury. He did not lose consciousness.”

Kerry is scheduled to fly out of Geneva to Boston, where he will receive treatment on his right femur. Kerry previously received treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital for a hip injury near the site of his leg injury and will work with the same doctor who performed his earlier surgery, according to CNN.

“Secretary Kerry is resting comfortably at the hospital in Geneva and remains in good spirits. He will continue to rest throughout the afternoon,” the statement read.

Due to the nature of his injury, Kerry will be unable to visit Spain as planned. Nor will he be able to go to the counter-ISIS coalition ministerial in Paris Tuesday, but he will participate in the talks remotely.
