George Clooney, 57, was involved in an accident at around 08:15 CET as he was leaving his hotel in Costa Corallina in the north of the island. He was thrown over the top of his scooter after being hit by a Mercedes while in Olbia on the island of Sardinia.

A police commander in Olbia, Giovanni Mannoni, said the actor did not suffer any serious injuries or break any bones. Clooney would be monitored by hospital staff as an outpatient for 20 days.

The incident took place on the SS125, a local street in the area of Olbia-Murta Maria. No irregularities were found in a scan taken of the star.


Mannoni said police were looking into the causes of the accident. Clooney, the husband of leading human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney, has a home on the Italian mainland at Lake Como.

They have two children together, twins, Ella and Alexander, who were born in 2017. The star has had a long affinity with Italy and is a frequent visitor to the Venice film festival.
