Jeremy Clarkson ‘out of action’ after being hospitalised in Spain

London — Television personality Jeremy Clarkson has announced he won't be returning to work any time soon after being hospitalised with pneumonia while vacationing in Mallorca.

The Grand Tour motoring show says Clarkson was hospitalised on Friday while on a break in Spain. Clarkson posted an image on social media on Saturday showing his arm with a hospital identity badge.

The 57-year-old quipped: "not the sort of bangles I usually choose on holiday."


Shortly thereafter, Clarkson gave an update of his condition on his website, Drive Tribe. He wrote: "Thanks for all the good wishes. And to keep you up to date, I'll be out of action for quite some time apparently."


Clarkson had been on vacation with his family after shooting the Amazon Prime show with co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May.

The trio are the former hosts of the BBC program Top Gear. They signed with Amazon for The Grand Tour, after Clarkson was fired for punching a producer in a dustup while filming.
