Veteran Oscar-winning actor Gene Hackman was taken hospital after a vehicle bumped him from behind while he was riding a bicycle in the Florida Keys.

His publicist Susan Madore said Hackman, 81, was airlifted to a Miami hospital on Friday afternoon.

She described his injuries as minor bumps and bruises, adding that he was released from the hospital several hours later after routine tests.

Hackman won an Academy Award for The French Connection in 1971 and another for Unforgiven in 1992.

He received Oscar nominations for three other films.

Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
