FORMER TOP Gear host Richard Hammond will undergo knee surgery after he suffered a broken leg when the car he was driving crashed and burst into flames.

The incident took place during filming for The Grand Tour in Switzerland where the TV presenter, 47, was driving an electric supercar and his colleague Jeremy Clarkson described it as ‘the biggest crash I’ve ever seen and the most frightening’.

Richard escaped the crash, which left the vehicle on its roof and scorched, with no serious injuries but requires knee surgery and may fly home for the procedure, according to F1 presenter Sasha Martinego who told his Twitter followers the pair had spoken.
