“The president reached for his shoes and fell off the motorcycle, resulting in minor injuries, in particular minor bruises and minor scratches,” Panelo said.

It is also indicated that the incident occurred on the evening of October 16 near the presidential residence.

According to Panelo, with Duterte, "everything is in order", for his recovery does not require "conducting serious medical procedures."

In September, Duterte allowed citizens to shoot officials demanding a bribe.
