Clooney, 57, was then taken to John Paul II hospital after stating he experienced trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm, La Nuova reported. Local media that had gathered at the hospital said Clooney is believed to have left through a side exit.

Clooney is thrown over the front of his bike and up in the air before landing on the asphalt, where the vehicle driver and other witnesses come to help.

Clooney was travelling to the set of his TV miniseries Catch-22 in Costa Corallina when his bike is understood to have hit a auto that "suddenly turned", Italian newspaper La Nuova reported. He has a home on Lake Como and was married in Venice in 2014 to the British human rights lawyer Amal Clooney.

Cicognani told CNN he had spoken with Clooney, who said he was "fine" and confirmed he would resume filming of a mini-series of Catch-22, based on the book by Joseph Heller, in a couple of days.
