George Clooney has said he was 'waiting for my switch to turn off' after he was in a motorcycle crash that could have killed him.

Speaking to The Sunday Times in a new interview, the Hollywood icon reflected on the moment he thought was the 'last minute of my life' as well as turning 60. 

Back in 2018, George was taken to hospital after he was hit by a car in Sardinia , while he was on the Italian island filming Catch 22, a TV adaptation of Joseph Heller's book of the same name.

The crash happened when a Mercedes turned in front of him and Clooney was thrown from the bike, slamming into the windscreen.  

The driver called Italian carabinieri, who sent the municipal police, an ambulance and the fire department - and while George was on the ground, he realised a crowd was gathering and people were filming him on their phones.

Recalling the accident, George said: 'I was waiting for my switch to turn off. I'm fine now. 

'If you're in the public eye, what you realise when you're on the ground thinking it's the last minute of your life is that, for some people, it's just going to be entertainment for their Facebook page.'

George, who also ventured into the world of filmmaking throughout his 43-year career, admitted he is a 'pretty positive guy' but that moment told him he was there 'for their entertainment.'  

Back in May, the Ocean's Eleven star marked a milestone birthday - his 60th - with his wife-of-seven-years, Amal.

'Turning 60 is a bummer. But it's that or dead,' he said.

The Academy Award winner also recalled how he told barrister Amal 'knock on wood, I'm healthy.'

He is also partial to a game of basketball with the 'younger gang', but George is already thinking ahead to his 80th.   

He described the next 20 years as 'halcyon', concluding the tell-all interview by expressing his desire to celebrate that.

FAA clears Verizon and AT&T to turn on more 5G cell towers

Federal safety regulators say they have cleared the way for Verizon and AT&T to power up more towers for new 5G service without causing radio interference with airplanes.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Friday that it took the steps after receiving details from the telecommunications companies about the location of wireless transmitters.

The FAA said the data helped it to better map areas around airports where new new high-speed 5G service won’t hinder the ability of planes to land during poor weather.

Aviation groups and the FAA had warned that the companies’ 5G service, which uses part of the radio spectrum called C-Band, was too close to the spectrum range used by instruments that measure the height of planes above the ground — crucial information for landing in low visibility.

Verizon and AT&T disputed the FAA’s warning, but they twice agreed to delay launching new 5G and temporarily delayed it around many airports even as they began offering the service in many U.S. cities on Jan. 19.

Since the dispute came to a head, the FAA has cleared most types of airline planes to operate around 5G signals, saying that their height-measuring devices, called radio altimeters, are safe from radio interference.
