Hong Kong actor Andy Lau has been hospitalised following an accident while filming in Thailand.

According to Apple Daily, the 55-year-old "heavenly king" arrived in Thailand on Monday (Jan 16) for the filming of a commercial which required him to ride on a horse.

A source told Apple Daily that Lau was riding on the horse in Khao Lak near Bangkok when it suddenly threw him off and stomped on him.

According to The Star, Lau could not move after falling off the horse.

In a report by South China Morning Post, it said that he has been treated for a pelvic injury.

Earlier, Taiwan's EBC news channel reported that Lau was believed to have suffered serious spinal fractures and was taken to a local hospital.

Arrangements were made for him to be transferred to a hospital in Hong Kong on Jan 18.

A statement issued by Lau's company Focus Artistes said that the actor "is currently being looked after by medical professionals".

"There is no cause for worry," it added.

The company also thanked everyone for their concern over the incident.
