he may have suffered sprain;tell him to take rest & restrict movement of his ankle;give him some painkiller which will ease pain.As injury is fresh tell him to apply ice today & tomorrow.

Please consult an Orthopaedician as a ligament injury or fracture has to be ruled out. If so he'll require an Xray. The type of fracture will decide the need for surgery. If a ligament injury, he'll be on a walking plaster cast, leg elevation over a pillow, analgesics and rest.
Better avoid bearing weight over that foot till the pain subsides. he could use elbow crutches. Elevation over a pillow will take care of the swelling.
