Hollywood actor Matt Damon has sent a special message to the staff and patients at Temple Street children's hospital - praising their 'incredible' bravery.

The message was sent by the Ocean's Eleven star as Ireland's level five lockdown begins.

The actor is in Ireland to film new historical blockbuster The Last Duel, and spent the previous coronavirus lockdown in Dalkey in Dublin after production was temporarily halted.

Amid reports that the actor has again been spotted in the Dublin suburb, the Children's Health Ireland (CHI) at Temple Street has shared a special message from the actor.

He said: "Hi to the staff, parents and patients of Temple Street Hospital - this is Matt Damon sending you a big hello.

"I know these last months have been brutal, but you're incredibly brave to keep going in there to get your treatments.

"I think you guys are amazing, and keep it up."
