    In a statement, the Hospital Trust said: "Mr Hammond has suffered a significant brain injury.
    "It's still giving cause for concern as it is still early after the injury.
    "However, we are reasonably optimistic that he will make a good recovery."

    Arguably the best presenter from the World's Best TV Show. Hope to see him back to full health real soon!

    Seems like a top bloke, hope he pulls through.

    Gotta think of his family (wife and 2 young daughters). It's always worse when children are involved, like with Steve Irwin. I have 2 children exactly the same age as Steve Irwin's and to think what they're going through ... poor little blighters.

    Anyway, drifting off topic slightly, get well soon hammy.

    Mike

    P.S. Anyone else notice the message on the audi-sport homepage ...

    "From everyone at Audi-Sport.net, we wish you a VERY SPEEDY recovery."

    A little insensitive perhaps, but purely accidental I'm sure. ;o)

    P.P.S. I heard them say on the radio that the "car" is capable of 0-270mph in 6 seconds!! DAMN that's quick!!!

    I reckon even if Hamster ever did read it that he would find it very amsuing and also I'm sure he be heartened by all your comments.. Oly's "Speedy Recovery" was right, if it was a pun or not.

    Sorry chaps, didn't mean to upset anyone. I wasn't remotely offended by the "very speedy recovery" comment, I found it quite amusing, as I'm sure Richard would. Was just pointing out what I thought was an accidental pun, apologies.

    Anyway, back to important stuff ... I heard on the radio that he's still critical but stable, and the docs are still confident he'll make a "good recovery". A little worrying that they're not saying "full recovery", but here's hoping he'll be ok.

    Cheers

    Mike

    as above - he's out of intensive care now and is stable :)

    wonder if he'll go back to top gear once he's recovered?

    Of course he'll go back to top gear he's a true petrol head, If it was just sever concusion or some such with no long term damage I can see them all sitting around taking the piss out of him.

    Clarkson's already made a joke about it being caused by his **** driving to him.

    The charity has now got way over £52,000 - good work everyone!

    Just read this;

    "His co-presenter Jeremy Clarkson, a Sun columnist, said in the paper the father-of-two got to his feet and walked "shakily" to the toilet during the early hours of Friday - just 30 hours after the crash."

    Sounds promising.

    Get well soon Hammy!
