Post Richard Hammond injured in Motorbike Crash in Mozambique.

"Richard Hammond was knocked unconscious in a horror crash while filming The Grand Tour .
The TV presenter hit his head after coming off his motorbike in a remote part of Africa.
He lay unconscious in the road in Mozambique, miles from medical help.
The smash came 11 years after Hammond almost died in a 288mph collision while filming Top Gear.
Co-star Jeremy Clarkson revealed: “He really did hurt himself quite badly.”
However, he quipped that the team "don't do hospitals".
A show source told The Sun: “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."
Co-stars Clarkson, 57, and James May, 54, were also at the scene when Hammond was attended to by medics.
Despite the initial concern, the incident is expected to feature in the second series of the Amazon Prime show, set for release later this year."

He probably came to a stop and his little legs couldn't reach the ground and he fell over.
No, I hope he's OK, he's good value, but stick to four wheels.

I thought the same but the world is full of celeb "news" so we shouldn't be surprised.

Why is there an image of him on the motorbike he rode in the TG Vietnam special?

I don't know but any news site that has "Wonder Woman's armpits divide fans" up at the top of the page probably doesn't need a reason (for anything)
