London: Superstar Daniel Craig's knee injury scene has been cut from the final edit of "Spectre".

The actor, 47, sprained the leg joint while filming a fight scene in Austria for the new Bond movie, and he later underwent surgery in New York and had several weeks off work to recover.

In a chat with talk show host Graham Norton, Craig said, "I knackered (injured) my knee. Sadly the bit when I did it wasn't in the film. It was really a shame. I had to have surgery but it worked out quite well because everyone got a two-week rest - it was an eight-month shoot so we were all tired out."

Outlining the injuries he has received during his nine years as Bond, Craig added, "I've had my right shoulder re-constructed, my right and left knees operated on and my thumb hurts!"
