You need to put ice on it and put it up (sit down and elevate your foot)  You can also wrap it.  Check it regularly and go to a doctor if the swelling gets worse.

Agreed. Remember the acronym R.I.C.E. for rest, ice, compression and elevation for injuries such as such as a sprain, strain, muscle pull or tear.
