Los Angeles - Liam Hemsworth has injured his ankle.

Production on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 was halted over the weekend after the 24-year-old hunk - who reprises his role of Gale Hawthorne in the final instalment of the franchise - hurt his foot last Friday.

According to E! News, filming stopped on Saturday and resumed on Tuesday on the big budget movie, which is due for release next year.

Liam was spotted limping in Berlin, Germany, over the weekend and had a second doctor's check-up on Tuesday.

The star was accompanied by a driver and two members of his entourage as he visited the doctor's office and is thought to have been there for 90 minutes.

Liam and his co-stars Jennifer Lawrence, 23, and Josh Hutcherson, 21, have picked up numerous war wounds while filming the high-octane Hunger Games movies over the last four years.

Josh previously revealed that he suffered a concussion after being kicked in the head by his Oscar-winning co-star, Jennifer.

He said: "The only time I got hurt was when I got kicked in the side of the head by Jennifer. We were hanging out and she was like, 'I can kick over your head', and I was like, 'No way.' She said, 'Watch!' But then she kicked me right in the temple.

"She felt so bad. She was crying. I've had a couple of concussions before so I knew what it feels like when it happens. We had to have a neurologist come in. It ended up being a very mild concussion, but still, it was a concussion."
