London - Daniel Craig has returned to filming for Spectre.

The 47-year-old actor underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair a knee injury he suffered on the set of the new James Bond movie earlier this month and he's now said to be back on location in London already.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Daniel is made of strong stuff and wanted to return as quick as possible.

"He filmed the face shots but his double was doing all the running. Daniel will have to take it easy until his knee is strong enough for strenuous sequences."

It was previously claimed that the hunky star had not missed any filming to have his operation as the "minor procedure" took place during a "scheduled break".

However, it was said he would not be rejoining production until April 22 when filming moved to London's Pinewood Studios.

Spectre - which also stars Christoph Waltz, Ralph Fiennes and Dave Bautista - has been filmed in a number of locations including Austria, Rome and Mexico City.

The Sam Mendes-directed film marks Craig's fourth outing as Bond and is scheduled for release in November 2015.
