I believe BF and DW both mentioned that HRC and JM were wearing orthopedic boots (see BF post, DW post).

Hillary Clinton breaks toe falling down stairs, misses BBC interview (Telegraph.co.uk, 10-16-17)
“Hillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of the BBC’s Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe.
