George Clooney hospitalised after motorbike crash in Italy

George Clooney was taken to hospital after a motorbike injury, it has been reported.

The actor is said to have suffered minor injuries after the collision between his motorbike and a car. The accident occurred in Sardinia, where George was filming TV series Catch-22.

An official at Sassari town hall confirmed to the BBC that Clooney had been involved in a “minor accident” but had no serious injuries. She said that he has been discharged from hospital.

Italian media claims that he was taken to the A&E of John Paul II hospital in Olbia via ambulance. He’s thought to have sustained a minor knee injury after the accident, which reportedly happened at 8am CET as he left his hotel in Costa Corallina.

Digital Spy has reached out to Clooney’s reps for comment.

It was confirmed in May that Clooney would be returning to his TV roots with Catch-22. Channel 4 announced that it’ll be airing the new six-part drama, though we still have a while to wait as the new series won’t be hitting screens until 2019.

The show is based on the celebrated novel of the same name by American author Joseph Heller. Clooney not only directs and acts in the project, but he’s also down as an executive producer.

The supporting cast includes The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Kyle Chandler, The Night Manager and Blackadder stalwart Hugh Laurie, and Christopher Abbott, known by some for his role in Girls.
