Jeremy Clarkson ‘punched in the head’ after flying on a private jet to Portugal

Jeremy Clarkson, 61, has opened up about suffering an injury during a trip to Portugal. The Grand Tour presenter explained how he’d been “punched” after he travelled via private jet to watch a Chelsea match.

The former Top Gear presenter explained he’d travelled over to Portugal for the Champions League final last week.

He and nine of his friends and family chartered a private jet to take them to the match.

However, Jeremy admitted it wasn’t long before “it all went wrong”.

He explained how he’d been separated from the group after a long lunch in the sunshine, which left him feeling “cheerful”.

The presenter explained: “So cheerful, in fact, that I got separated from my party and found myself surrounded by some good-natured City fans who decided to express their good-naturedness by punching me in the side of the head.”

He continued in his column for The Sun about how he had to reassure the police and ambulance he was okay.

Jeremy added: “It took ten minutes to convince a policeman that it was just ­joshing that had gone a bit wrong and that no one needed to go to the station.

“And then I had to spend another ten minutes watching an ambulanceman move his finger around to convince himself that I didn’t need to go to the hospital either.”

The presenter also shared some pictures of a boat in Porto and a video in the crowd.

Jeremy tweeted about his love of Portugal following the Chelsea win.

He penned: “We launched the Grand Tour in Portugal and now…..

“It’s a country where great things happen.”

Elsewhere, Jeremy will soon be starring in his own series for Amazon Prime Video.

Called Clarkson’s Farm, this will follow his journey of buying a farm in Chipping Norton.

The show is expected to launch in full on the platform on Friday, June 11.

The synopsis reads: “Jeremy Clarkson is a journalist, a broadcaster, and a man who travels the world to slide sideways in supercars while shouting.

“He is not a farmer, which is unfortunate because he’s bought a 1,000-acre farm in the English countryside and decided to run it himself, despite knowing nothing whatsoever about farming.

“The series follows an intense, backbreaking and frequently hilarious year in the life of Britain’s most unlikely farmer and his team, as they contend with the worst farming weather in decades, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops, and an unexpected pandemic.

“Helped only by his gang of agricultural associates, Clarkson quickly discovers that a modern farmer must be a conservationist, scientist, shepherd, shopkeeper, midwife, engineer, accountant and tractor driver, often at the same time.”
