Biden's doctor declares him 'fit' and able to carry out his duties

President Biden's doctor on Wednesday released a summary of his health following an annual checkup in which he declared no major new concerns and said the president "continues to be fit for duty."

The six-page summary was released at a time when Biden's age and cognitive abilities have been under scrutiny as the nation's oldest president runs for reelection. The 81-year-old incumbent, who would be 86 at the end of a second term, is likely to face Donald Trump, who is 77.

The exam found Biden, at 6 feet and 178 pounds, in good shape physically. "President Biden is a healthy, active, robust 81-year-old male, who remains fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief," the report concluded.
