He will now undergo minor ankle surgery, a tweet from the official James Bond account said.
“Production will continue whilst Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks post-surgery.

An official movie title for the 25th Bond installment has not been released and the film is being referred to as Bond 25.
It will be Craig’s fifth outing as 007 after earlier saying he would “rather cut his own wrists” than do the role again. He eventually confirmed in 2017 he would play Bond one more time.
Ralph Fiennes is returning as M and Naomie Harris as Moneypenny. Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Naomie Harris and Jeffrey Wright are also reprising their roles.
Oscar winner Rami Malek, who starred as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, is making his Bond debut playing a villain while Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch and Game Night actor Billy Magnussen are joining the cast.
