Former Top Gear star and current host of The Grand Tour Richard Hammond is “fine” after a motorcycle crash reportedly knocked him out.
The TV star, who suffered brain damage in 2006 when a rocket-powered car he was driving crashed, admitted in a blog post that he came off a motorcycle while filming in a remote part of Mozambique.
“It’s true, I did fall off a motorbike whilst filming recently for The Grand Tour in Mozambique. I banged my head, yes, along with pretty much everything else apart from my left thumb, which remains un-bruised,” Hammond wrote in a blog post. Although he didn’t confirm it himself, The Sun is reporting that Hammond was knocked unconscious.
Details on the crash are still in the dark as we have to wait for the episode to air to find out exactly what happened. “Can’t tell you more yet about the how and why of it; that’s all for later in the year on the show. As for injuries; well put it this way, I don’t think I can get a book out of it,” said Hammond.
The second season of The Grand Tour will be released sometime later in 2017. Below, you can see what it looks like when Richard Hammond rides a motorcycle without incident.
