I can confirm that yes, I fell off a. bike, many times, in fact and yes, I banged my head and everything else.

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

Richard's co-star Jeremy Clarkson had told the newspaper: "He really did hurt himself quite badly". "But life goes on (sic)".

The former Top Gear host was "badly hurt" in a remote part of Mozambique, east Africa, according to the Sun.

The first episode of the first season was uploaded to Amazon Prime in November past year, and consisted of 13 episodes.

A show source added: 'Richard was travelling quite fast when he came off.

The Sun reports that The Hamster, 47, came off a motorbike and hit his head, rendering him unconscious in a crash that caused immediate panic on the set.

Hammond had earlier almost died in a vehicle crash and suffered serious brain damage in a 288mph smash during the filming of Top Gear 11 years ago. There was a lot of concern. When asked if he had been taken to hospital, Clarkson said: "We don't do hospitals".

'If his injuries had been serious it wouldn't have been easy to get medical attention.

Clarkson and fellow presenter James May were present at the time of the recent crash and were said to have been "shaken" as Hammond's previous crash was "fresh in their minds".

The Grand Tour Crew raced to Richard's aid, mindful that he suffered serious brain damage in a 288mph collision 11 years back.

At the time, Hammond crashed a jet vehicle that was travelling at 288 miles per hour at the time of the crash.
