Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili broke his arm Monday as he was out cycling in Antalya, Turkey.

TBILISI, DFWatch–The Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili has broken his arm while riding a bicycle during a visit to Turkey.

He is undergoing medical treatment in Istanbul and all his meetings are postponed.

The accident was reported by Turkish media, and the president’s Facebook page later confirmed it with the brief message:

“Mikheil Saakashvili was injured during everyday exercise, while riding a bicycle. He has triple fracture of arm. President had an operation at the hospital in Istanbul.”

Saakashvili started his Turkey trip April 6, and has so far had a number of meetings.

But the visit took an unexpected turn as he broke his arm while out cycling in Antalya on Monday.

During the bike ride, the president drove off to a transport road and crashed into a trailer. He also received other injuries. Saakashvili was taken to Istanbul, where he remains in the hospital until now.

All events planned with the participation of the Georgian president have been postponed.
