Jeremy Clarkson hospitalized with pneumonia
Posted August 6
British television personality Jeremy Clarkson is being treated for pneumonia after being admitted to a hospital in Spain.
A spokesperson for Clarkson's Amazon Prime show, "The Grand Tour" said in a written statement that Clarkson "was admitted to hospital on Friday morning during a family holiday in Spain."
The 57-year-old posted a photo on Instagram of some medical tubes in his arm and an identity tag around his wrist with the caption, "Not the sort of bangles I usually choose on holiday."
Clarkson also tweeted he was "in a wheelchair."
Before hosting, "The Grand Tour," Clarkson co-hosted the popular BBC show "Top Gear." He was fired by the BBC for swearing at and punching a producer of the show in March 2015. Clarkson later apologized for the incident and told CNN in 2016 he didn't want to be a controversial figure.
""I never want to be controversial, it just happens," he said.
"I say stuff sometimes and think, 'Oh, no.'"
