'Badly hurt': Richard Hammond has reportedly been injured in a motorbike crash: Amazon Prime

BBC presenter Richard Hammond has been “badly hurt” after falling off a motorbike during filming for The Grand Tour, it has been reported.

The former Top Gear host, 47, was injured while shooting the Amazon Prime show in a remote part of Mozambique, east Africa, according to the Sun.

Co-star Jeremy Clarkson told the newspaper: "He really did hurt himself quite badly."

But asked if Hammond went to hospital, Clarkson joked: "We don't do hospitals."

The accident comes 11 years after Hammond was left in a coma following a high-speed smash while filming for the BBC show in 2006.

The presenter was in a coma for a fortnight following the 288mph accident but made a full recovery despite having life-threatening head injuries.
