Clooney, 57, was riding the bike at Costa Corallina on the island of Sardinia when he was involved in a collision with a vehicle, according to Italy's TGR Rai Sardegna.

According to reports, the actor was taken to the emergency room at John Paul II hospital following reported trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and arm but has not been seriously injured.

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

Clooney arrived in Sardinia to direct a TV miniseries called Catch 22, based on the novel by American author Joseph Heller set during World War II.

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

George and Amal met back in 2013 when Amal attended a party at the Ocean's Eleven star's house in Lake Como, Italy.
