Je suis en retard de cinq minutes

Why was this marked incorrect for "I am five minutes late" ?   According to the lecture, can use either "Je suis en retard"  (de 5 minutes) or  "J'ai (5 minutes) de retard"

You should submit this question through the quiz 'report issue' button. The sentence is correct, so either there was a technical error, or some other error.
