Gerard Butler in hospital after motorbike crash

Gerard Butler has been reportedly been taken to hospital after crashing his motorbike in Los Angeles.

The 300 star came off the bike after he was cut off by a car, according to US celebrity news site TMZ.

Butler was taken to hospital after someone called 911, but a source close to the 47-year-old said he just suffered cuts and bruises.

The Scot is often pictured riding around LA on his Triumph and Harley-Davidson bikes.

Butler has been busy promoting his latest film, the disaster movie Geostorm, about a network of climate control satellites that malfunction and unleash weather-related chaos.

The film, which began filming in 2014, has been delayed after scenes had to be re-shot because of poor audience test screenings.

There are now concerns the film’s release is badly timed considering the recent hurricanes that hit the Caribbean and the US.
