George Clooney "smashed in to a windscreen" when his scooter collided with a vehicle in Sardinia.

George Clooney has been hospitalised after crashing his bike in Sardinia, Italy, according to reports.

Amal, 40, and George, along with their one-year-old twins, are now living in Sardinia for the summer, where he is filming his new TV series, Catch 22.

Italian newspaper La Nuova Sardegna tweeted a photo of the purported accident site.

He is understood to have received treatment at John Paul II hospital, but NBC News report that he has since been discharged.

George relocated his family to the idyllic Italian island for the summer to direct the forthcoming TV mini series.

Calls and emails to Clooney's spokesman in regards to the accident weren't immediately returned, according to Associated Press.

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

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