Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 11) — All is well with President Rodrigo Duterte said a lawmaker close to him.

Doubts about the President's health were dispelled by Senator Bong Go who shared photos and videos showing Duterte riding his motorcycle and golfing on Sunday morning.

"Konting papawis lang dahil halos bawal lumabas," said Go on his Facebook post.

[Translation: Just a little exercise because it is almost impossible to go out.]

Go told CNN Philippines the photos were taken on Sunday morning within Malacañang grounds.

The videos and photos surfaced as the President's health has been questioned after his regular address was postponed last week.

Brig. Gen. Jesus Durante III, commander of the Presidential Security Group, told CNN Philippines on Thursday that he recommended the deferment of the President's activities for the week due to the alarming rise in COVID-19 cases among PSG personnel.

However, on Saturday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the weekly "Talk to the People" address will resume on April 12, Monday.
