Hollywood star George Clooney was taken to hospital after suffering minor injuries in a collision involving his scooter and a car.

The accident happened in Sardinia where the US actor is filming his latest 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 added that he had now been discharged from hospital.

It’s thought the incident took place around 08:00 CET as he was leaving his hotel in Costa Corallina in the north of the island.

Italian news agency ANSA and local newspapers report the star was taken by ambulance to the A&E of the John Paul II hospital in Olbia.

The most recent reports suggest Clooney sustained a minor knee injury in the incident.

Clooney, 57, plays US Air Force commander Scheisskopf in the World War Two Channel 4 drama, based on Joseph Heller’s classic novel.

The six-part drama is set to air in 2019.

Clooney has had a home on the Italian mainland, on Lake Como, for many years.

He has long had an affinity with Italy. He is a frequent visitor to the Venice film festival and wed his wife Amal in the city in 2014.
