CROCODILE hunter Steve Irwin has been injured while training for crocodile wrestling.

Irwin was limping and sporting a knee brace on his left leg while performing in Los Angeles yesterday for Australia Week.

Irwin told the American crowd he'd like to say he injured himself while fighting white sharks but the truth was he'd torn some knee ligaments while in wrestling training.

Also in Los Angeles , Hollywood 's A-list came out to watch a slice of Australian life in the heart of Tinseltown.

John Travolta, Hugh Jackman and Olivia Newton-John were among a crowd who ate pies, drank beer and watched a footy game between the Sydney Swans and the Kangaroos.

The match was the highlight of the Australia Week celebration G'Day LA.
