Harrison Ford can breathe a sigh of relief after his stolen credit card was returned.

The actor, 79, lost his card during a stay in a beach town near Palermo, Sicily.

Luckily, it was picked up by a German tourist, who gave it to local police in Mondello, a town known for its long sandy beach.

After the good samaritan handed in the card, officers tracked the Blade Runner star down and returned it to its rightful owner.

Italian media published a photo of Ford smiling, holding the card up for the camera alongside two officers and the local commander.

Since the actor’s reported net worth is estimated at $300m (£218m), it’s no wonder he was pleased.

Ford – who currently sits at number seven on the list of highest-grossing domestic box office stars of all time – is currently in Sicily filming scenes for Indiana Jones.

The upcoming film will be his fifth outing as the professor of archaeology.

Filming was previously delayed for a year as a result of the pandemic, during which Ford signed onto another project.

He headlined a big-budget adaptation of Jack London’s The Call of the Wild, playing prospector John Thornton. 

The film was released in February 2020 and its theatrical release was shortened due to Covid.

The Hollywood legend was later forced to take a break from Indiana Jones filming due to a shoulder injury, which occurred on set at Pinewood Studios.

He was recuperating for 10 weeks before cast and crew were ‘relieved’ to see him back in action.

The actor has also recently filmed in locations across the UK, including Grosmont in North Yorkshire and London’s Hatton Garden.

The next instalment in the Indiana Jones franchise remains untitled for now, but release is scheduled for 2023. 

Directed by James Mangold, the latest project marks the first time an Indiana Jones movie has not been directed by Steven Spielberg. 

Alongside Ford stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Toby Jones, and Antonio Banderas.

The film is the sequel to 2008’s Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
