The Hollywood actor was taken to hospital after being involved in a traffic accident while driving his scooter on the island of Sardinia Italy

The newspaper tweeted a photo apparently from the scene, showing a lightly smashed up motorbike and vehicle, with a caption suggesting the auto had been turning and Clooney had made contact with its windscreen.

A photo from the Italian website La Nuova showed the car's windshield cracked.

He was taken to John Paul II hospital in Olbia, Italy, for his injuries, but according to NBC News, has already been discharged.

Clooney and his wife Amal were spotted in Porto San Paolo in Sardinia over the weekend, according to The Daily Mail. Local media that had gathered at the hospital said Clooney is believed to have left through a side exit.

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


Even earlier in June, Clooney was seen zipping around the island on a scooter with Amal, 40, hugging him tightly.

In April, the legendary thespian announced he was cutting down his acting role in the Hulu production so he could focus on directing.

Italy is an important place for Amal and George.

Clooney has a home on Lake Como on the Italian mainland.
