Footage taken from a street in Italy shows George Clooney was thrown several feet into the air when his motorbike collided with an oncoming car.

Clooney, 57, collided with a Mercedes on the Italian island of Sardinia about 7am on Tuesday, when it turned into his lane as he tried to ride past, Page Six reported.

Video taken from a fixed security camera shows another rider managed to get around the car, but Clooney, believed to be riding nearby, was reportedly hit.

In the video, he is seen flipping over the handlebars of his bike, flying into the air, appearing to hit the windscreen of the car, before tumbling onto the asphalt.
