Gordon Ramsay says he’s ‘lucky to be here’ after ‘really bad’ accident


Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay recently experienced a serious cycling accident. In an Instagram post, the MasterChef star shared that the accident occurred earlier this week while he was biking in Connecticut, USA, according to People.

Noting that the incident “really shook me” and resulted in a hospital visit, Ramsay said, “Honestly, I’m lucky to be here.” He added, “I’m in pain. It’s been a brutal week,” while lifting up his chef’s jacket to reveal his heavily bruised ribs. “And I’m sort of getting through it. But I cannot tell you the importance of wearing a helmet.”

In his caption, Ramsay explained that although he did not “break any bones or suffer any major injuries,” he was “a bit bruised up looking like a purple potato.” Ramsay reiterated that he was “thankful” for wearing a helmet during the accident, as it “saved my life.”

“I don’t care how short the journey is. I don’t care, you know, the fact that these helmets cost money … they’re crucial,” he emphasized. “Even with the kids, a short journey, they’ve got to wear a helmet.”

Ramsay concluded his video and caption by wishing families a “great” and “safe” Father’s Day.
