Gordon Ramsay has expressed gratitude for his safety after experiencing a severe accident while riding his bike in the United States. The renowned TV chef, 57, shared his harrowing experience with his 7.6 million followers on X and 17 million followers on Instagram, emphasizing the importance of wearing a helmet.

Ramsay, who was involved in the incident in Connecticut, praised the medical staff at Lawrence and Memorial Hospital for their exceptional care. He credited his survival to the helmet he was wearing at the time of the accident. “I’m lucky to be standing here,” Ramsay said, showing a large bruise on his torso in a graphic video. “I am in pain, it’s been a brutal week, but I am sort of getting through it.”

Despite the severity of the accident, Ramsay reported that he did not suffer any broken bones or major injuries. He humorously referred to himself as looking like a “purple potato” but reiterated the importance of helmet safety. “You’ve got to wear a helmet,” he urged. “I don’t care how short the journey is. I don’t care that these helmets cost money, they’re crucial.”

Ramsay concluded his message with a heartfelt Father’s Day wish, underscoring the significance of helmet use. “I want to wish you all a happy Father’s Day, but please, please, please wear a helmet. If I didn’t, honestly, I wouldn’t be here now.”

In November, Ramsay welcomed his sixth child, Jesse James Ramsay, with his wife Tana. The couple, married for nearly 30 years, also have five other children: Megan, Matilda, twins Jack and Holly, and Oscar.

A passionate cyclist, Ramsay has participated in various endurance challenges, including triathlons and Iron Man competitions. However, he faced criticism during the coronavirus lockdown for traveling to his second home in Cornwall, where he frequently filmed himself cycling long distances.
