Richard Hammond 'fine' after motorbike crash

Richard Hammond has reassured fans that he is “fine” after falling off a motorbike while filming for The Grand Tour.

Hammond had been in Mozambique shooting the Amazon Prime show when he had the accident.

His co-star Jeremy Clarkson told The Sun newspaper that Hammond “hurt himself quite badly”.

But Hammond said on Monday: “Yes, I fell off, but yes I’m fine, sorry.”

A ‘slight shunt’

Writing on his blog, he said: “Thanks for enquiries re my slight shunt whilst filming for GT.

“I can confirm that yes, I fell off a bike, many times, in fact and yes, I banged my head and everything else. But life goes on.”

It is not known exactly when the accident happened but Clarkson tweeted about being in Mozambique in early March.

In 2006, Hammond suffered life-threatening head injuries following a high-speed crash as he filmed for BBC’s Top Gear.

The presenter was in a coma for a fortnight but made a full recovery.
