Hillary Clinton suffers broken toe on UK tour

The politician has revealed she was running down stairs with a coffee cup in her hand when she fell.

Hillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of The Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe, the Press Association can exclusively reveal.

She said: “I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards.

“I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe. I’ve received excellent care from your excellent health service.”

Mrs Clinton has been in the UK promoting her memoirs, What Happened, which documents her shock defeat in the US election.

Her full interview will air this Friday on The Graham Norton Show at 10:35 pm
