And now it has been revealed that the 47 year old hit his head during a motorbike crash on new show, The Grand Tour.

The TV personality was knocked out after falling from the bike during a ride in Mozambique. 

As a result, the star ended up lying unconscious in the road, miles from medical help. 

“He really did hurt himself quite badly,” Richard’s co-star Jeremy Clarkson told The Sun.

But asked if the father of two had been rushed to hospital, the presenter added: “We don’t do hospitals.”

Richard and co-stars Jeremy and James May flew to Mozambique a fortnight ago to film the second series of The Grand Tour. 


A show source then continued: “Richard was travelling quite fast when he came off. 

“It caused instant horror on set. There was a lot of concern.

“If his injuries had been serious it wouldn’t have been easy to get medical attention.

“It’s very remote there and facilities are basic.”

Richard almost died 11 years ago when he was badly injured in a 288mph collision on Top Gear. 

The presenter was in a coma for two weeks in 2006, after a jet-powers car he was testing for the show crashed.

The star had been trying to set a new land speed record at RAF Elvington, near York.

In 2008, Richard described the effects of his brain injuries from the crash, revealing he suffered depression, paranoia and memory loss as a result of the incident.
