Richard Hammond, co-presenter for The Grand Tour and former Top Gear presenter, has reportedly sustained injury after coming off a motorbike in Africa.

Hammond, 47, who stars in the Amazon motoring show alongside Jeremy Clarkson and James May, hit his head after falling from the bike in Mozambique, Africa, and lay unconscious in the road, according to The Sun.

In a post entitled "Yes, I fell off but yes, I'm fine".

A show source added: 'Richard was travelling quite fast when he came off. It cause instant horror on set. They reportedly flew out to Mozambique earlier this month (Mar17), a nation where nearly a third of the population do not have access to advanced medical treatment. An unverified report suggests Hammond was knocked unconscious.

It is not known when the incident happened but Hammond's co-star Jeremy Clarkson tweeted about being in Mozambique in early March.

As for the seriousness of the injuries, he said "I don't think I can get a book out of it".

The accident comes 11 years after Hammond almost lost his life while filming an episode of Top Gear back in September 2006.

Will Hammond still like celery after this latest head-bashing incident?

In September 2006 Hammond was seriously injured when he crashed at over 460km/h during a stunt for Top Gear.

We'll just have to wait until the next season of The Grand Tour airs later this year to find out.

He survived but when he woke from a two-week coma, he was left with some lasting brain damage which triggered depression and memory loss.
