Daniel Craig has undergone knee surgery after injuring himself on the set of upcoming James Bond film Spectre.

Eon Productions said he had had a minor procedure in New York during a break in production over Easter, reported BBC online.

A spokeswoman denied reports the 47-year-old had missed several days of filming on the 24th Bond film, Spectre.

"During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood," she said.

Filming on Spectre began at Pinewood Studios, in Buckinghamshire, last December, and has since moved to Rome and Mexico.

It is Craig's fourth outing as the secret service agent, and follows the success of 2012's Skyfall, which made 737 million pounds worlwide.

The film features Christoph Waltz plays a character called Oberhauser - which, in the novels, is the name of Bond's former skiing instructor.

However, it has been rumoured the actor will be revealed as Bond's old nemesis, Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Blofeld was the "number one" in Spectre, an international crime syndicate which last featured in the Sean Connery-era films.

Spectre will be released on November 6, 2015.
