Richard Hammond has spoken about the long-term effects of his recent accident, after being involved in a serious incident on the set of ‘The Grand Tour’.

Back in March, Richard was airlifted to hospital after jumping from a car as it overturned, while filming a stunt for the Amazon Prime show.

The accident left him in need of knee surgery, and he’s now opened up about the aftermath and his recovery period.

Last month, it was reported that Jeremy Clarkson had been rushed to hospital with pneumonia, after he took ill while on holiday with his family in Spain.

Opening up about his hospital stint, he wrote in his Sunday Times column that he’d been told he’d need to stay under doctors’ care for at least a week, and when he claimed this would be “impossible”, he was told by one medic: “If you don’t do as I say you will die.”
