George Clooney released from hospital after motorcycle crash in Italy

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

American actor and director George Clooney was injured in a scooter accident on the Italian island of Sardinia where he is working on a miniseries, Italian media reported on Tuesday.

Sardinian hospital John Paul II says Clooney has already been discharged, according to NBC News.

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

A fire extinguisher can be seen on the road but no people are visible.

Mr Clooney has been in Sardinia for several weeks for filming of a six-part series based on Heller's 1961 novel about the USAAF during the Second World War.

Clooney is now filming TV drama Catch-22 on the Italian island.

It was announced in April that the multi-talented star was reducing his role in the Hulu production so he could concentrate on his directing and producing credits.

Immediately after the crash, Clooney was transported to a nearby hospital.

Clooney was pictured stepping off a private jet with wife Amal and twins, Alexander and Ella, near the end of last month.

Italy is an important place for Amal and George.

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