He wrote: "Thanks for enquiries re my slight shunt whilst filming for GT.

"I can confirm that yes, I fell off a. bike, many times, in fact and yes, I banged my head and everything else. But life goes on (sic)."

Hammond's co-star Jeremy Clarkson had told the newspaper: "He really did hurt himself quite badly."

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

It comes 11 years after Hammond suffered life-threatening head injuries following a high-speed crash as he filmed for BBC's Top Gear in 2006.

The presenter was in a coma for two weeks following the 288mph accident, but made a full recovery.
