Former Top Gear co-host Richard Hammond has revealed that his leg was left slightly shorter due to a knee injury following a recent car crash.

The 47-year-old presenter was filming a segment in an electric super car for the second season of The Grand Tour when the incident happened.

Hammond was airlifted to hospital after the accident and underwent a major operation to fix his broken knee, and has now revealed that he lost 7mm of height during the injury.

“I think when the car touched down nose-first, it drove that leg up there into the knee joint and smashed the bottom bit of the knee here,” he told This Morning’s Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
