George Clooney is "fine" but recovering after he was hit by a vehicle in Sardinia on Tuesday. The car's driver assisted George after the crash and reportedly called an ambulance, according to NBC. He and wife Amal covertly left the hospital through a side exit and were ferried into a private auto.

"He is recovering at his home and will be fine", the spokesperson continued.

An official at Sassari town hall confirmed to the BBC that Clooney had been involved in a "minor accident" but had no serious injuries.

The north-east coast of Sardinia is popular with the rich and famous, although Clooney is on location on the island to film a new mini-series Catch 22. He was taken to hospital with a possible injury to his hip, state news agency Ansa said.
