Andrew Flintoff, the former captain of England, had an accident while filming an episode of Top Gear, a BBC show about cars, in Surrey on Monday. This caused cricket fans all over the world to worry.
Who Is Freddie Flintoff?
Andrew Flintoff was born in Preston, England, on December 6, 1977. Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff MBE is an English former international cricket player who now works as a TV and radio host. Flintoff was consistently ranked by the ICC as one of the best international all-rounders in both one-day internationals (ODIs) and tests.
Flintoff played all kinds of cricket and was one of the best all-rounders in the sport. He was a fast bowler, a middle-order batsman, and a slip fielder. But he got hurt often during his international career, often because he was big and because of the way he bowled.
What Happened To Freddie Flintoff?
Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff was taken to the hospital after a high-speed crash that happened while he was filming the latest Top Gear show.
The former captain of the England cricket team, who is now a broadcaster, took part in a shoot at Surrey’s Dunsfold Park Aerodrome on Tuesday. This location has been a regular part of the BBC show since 2002.
The air ambulance took the 45-year-old to the hospital. The current, which broke the story, says it is thought that Flintoff’s injuries are “not life-threatening.” It said that filming has been put off.
A spokesperson for the Current said, “Freddie was hurt in an accident at the Top Gear test track this morning.” “Crew medics went to the scene right away.”
“He was taken to the hospital for more care, and we’ll let you know more as soon as we can.”
Since he started co-hosting the show in 2019, Flintoff has been in a high-speed accident. In 2019, he lost control of a motorized tricycle called “The Time Bandit” while racing with co-hosts Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness at 124 mph.
After the race, he said, “I go to great lengths to do well in Top Gear drag races, but I went a few lengths too far this time!” “When you see it on TV, it will look more funny than dangerous.”
The former all-rounder retired from cricket in 2015 and continued his TV career, which he had started on Sky One’s A League of Their Own five years earlier.
