George Clooney injured in motorbike accident

George Clooney hospitalized after car accident in Sardinia reports

The John Paul II hospital in Olbia said Clooney was released Tuesday.

News reporter Claudio Lavanga tweeted, citing police, that the accident happened around 8 a.m. local time.

Clooney was in Sardinia shooting his Hulu limited series Catch-22.

Seemingly unable to stop in time, George slammed into the bonnet, reportedly at 60mph and was flung off his bike and onto the vehicle, before landing on the ground. His wife, Amal, rushed to her husband's side at the hospital, and left with the superstar after his injuries were deemed minor.

Cicognani told CNN he had spoken with Clooney, who said he was "fine" and would resume filming of a miniseries based on "Catch-22", the Joseph Heller book, in a couple of days.

Following the crash, it was reported George's injuries were not thought to be serious. The photo showed the car's windscreen smashed.

Fans were quick to express their relief that the dad-of-two was doing well after the accident, with one tweeting: "I saw George Clooney trending and nearly had a heart attack".

Wife Amal, 40, came to collect him and the couple left in a chauffeur-driven vehicle.

The 57-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital, Italian media reported. George suffered a broken rib and some other scrapes and bruises, while Sarah was diagnosed with a broken foot.

They all came together at the up-market Il Marino di Puntaldia restaurants after George had finished filming.
