Weary Daniel Day Lewis is seen with his arm in plaster

Daniel Day-Lewis was spotted on Wednesday with his arm bandaged up following his reported motorbike crash earlier this month.

The 60-year-old actor was reportedly involved in a motorbike accident in which nobody else was hurt yet he sustained the injury which has seen his arm bound in plaster and resting in a cast.

Esteemed star Daniel was seen to be wearing the same striped bottoms as before yet transformed into a blue T-shirt, as he continued to recover from the accident.

A source exclusively told Page Six: 'He was in a motorbike accident and broke his arm. But he's fine, and no one else was hurt.  He was well-protected - he was wearing a helmet. But it was a bummer.' 

The source added that the accident was not the star's fault. When contacted by MailOnline a rep for Daniel Day-Lewis declined to comment.

News of the alleged accident comes just months after the star retired from acting. In a statement issued in June, his spokeswoman, Leslee Dart, said he 'will no longer be working as an actor,' trade magazine Variety reported.

'He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years,' Dart said, 'This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.'

Daniel, a master of method acting known for being extremely selective about his roles, is the only performer to have ever won three best actor Oscars.

He earned a golden statuette for 'My Left Foot' (1989), in which he plays writer and artist Christy Brown, who was confined to a wheelchair because of cerebral palsy; a second one for 'There Will Be Blood' (2008), in which he plays a fierce oil man; and a third for the lead role in Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' (2013).

He also earned Oscar nods for 'Gangs of New York' and 'In the Name of the Father.'
