London, Aug 7 (IANS) Actor Rowan Atkinson, popularly known as Mr Bean, has been discharged from hospital after suffering a shoulder fracture in an accident.

The 56-year-old was hospitalised after he crashed his luxury McLaren F1 car. The car spun off the road, hitting a tree and a road sign before catching fire.

Atkinson was seen leaving the hospital in Peterborough, England, in a wheelchair and was driven away in an ambulance.

“I understand he has a fractured shoulder blade which is very painful and why he needed to stay in overnight. He is shaken but not stirred. I think he was in pain and had painkillers,” mirror.co.uk quoted Atkinson’s representative Peter Bennett-Jones as saying.

“The car has been removed and I’m sure he won’t want it to be written off. He will want to get it repaired straight away… He will be very rattled and I think he’ll want to keep as low profile as possible,” Bennett-Jones added.
