Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson will miss at least four more AFL matches as he recovers from Guillain-Barre syndrome.

Hawthorn chief executive Stuart Fox revealed on Monday that Clarkson was released from hospital on Saturday morning and was walking as part of his recovery.

Fox said Clarkson’s was a “mild” case of the rare autoimmune disease.

The Hawks have confirmed assistant Brendon Bolton will coach the side in Clarkson’s absence.
