Richard Hammond Says He Will Be Back

The Grand Tour host was on a practice run for a race in an electric car for the Amazon Prime show when the vehicle burst into flames. Hammond injured his knee and leg and in a blog entry says he had "two sleepless nights and several hours' surgery".

The ex-Top Gear host posted photos of himself on crutches and his stitches
The presenter had sustained a fracture to the knee, a spokesperson for The Grand Tour said.

Writing on the Drive Tribe website, Hammond says: "I'm pleased to announce that after two sleepless nights and several hours' surgery, my Swiss Army Knee is finished and works.

"It bends in the middle and whilst a problem at airport security, is at least rustproof.

"Back in action soon."

The incident on 10 June, which took place as Hammond completed a hill climb in the Hemberg area, was described as a "serious crash" by The Grand Tour.
He had been driving a "Rimac Concept One", an electric super car built in Croatia, during filming for the show's second season.
