According to NBC reporter Claudio Lavanga, the Sardinia hospital where Clooney was being treated has already discharged the actor.

Local daily La Nuova Sardegna says Clooney's injuries aren't serious, but that he was taken to the John Paul II hospital emergency room.

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.

It's thought he has sustained a hip injury from the incident and has since been released from hospital.

The American is on location in Sardinia to film a new mini-series "Catch 22".

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

George and Amal were seen arrive in the island on a private jet at the end of June with their twins Alexander and Ella.

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

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