Harrison Ford has sustained a shoulder injury during rehearsals for a fight scene on Indiana Jones 5.

US entertainment trade publication The Hollywood Reporter says the extent of the 78-year-old's injury is unclear.

In a statement, a Disney spokesperson said: "In the course of rehearsing for a fight scene, Harrison Ford sustained an injury involving his shoulder.

"Production will continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks."

Indiana Jones 5 began filming in the UK earlier this month. It had been delayed for almost a year due to the pandemic.

Logan director James Mangold is taking over from Steven Spielberg behind the lens, and the cast also includes Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Shaunette Renée Wilson (The Resident) and Thomas Kretschmann (Avengers: Age of Ultron).

Spielberg is among the producers of the new film, with a release date pencilled in for 29 July 2022.
