Russian President Vladimir Putin fell down stairs at his home Wednesday evening and soiled himself, according to a Russian Telegram channel named General SRV, which claims to have links to his bodyguards.

Putin, 70, was reportedly helped to a sofa by bodyguards as his personal doctors rushed to help him.

According to the account, Putin was walking downstairs when he "stumbled and fell to his back, after which he fell on his side and slid down a couple of steps."

"The incident took place in front of the president's bodyguards, who reacted quickly and rushed to Putin's aid," the report said. "Three security officers helped the president to get to the nearest sofa and called the doctors who are on duty at the residence."

The channel said medics "arrived within a few minutes, but could not immediately examine the president."

The sharp impact to his coccyx caused him to "involuntarily defecate" due to "cancer of the gastrointestinal tract," according to the channel.

"Before the examination, the doctors escorted the president to the bathroom and helped to clean up."

General SRV has posted updates about Putin's health since the start of Moscow's invasion of Ukraine in February.

The Kremlin has consistently denied reports Putin is suffering poor health.
