Top Gear presenter Freddie Flintoff looked fighting fit as he hit the gym following his high speed crash during filming.

The sportsman, wearing black shorts and a T-shirt, went hard on an upright rowing machine in an energetic video shared on Instagram on Thursday.

Freddie, 41, seemed to suggest that previous reports about how fast he had been going when he crashed weren’t entirely accurate.

He wrote in the caption: ‘Moving alright for a bloke who had a 124mph crash. Never let the facts get in the way FFS.’

The cricketer had been racing at Elvington Airfield, near York, and veered off the track at high speed.

But thankfully he managed to come out basically unscathed with his helmet and full racing suit doing their job.

Freddie insisted he was absolutely fine following the incident, but admitted he might have taken things a bit too far.

He told Mail Online: ‘I’m absolutely fine and was back filming today. I go to great lengths to make sure I do well in Top Gear drag races but on this occasion I went a few lengths too far.

‘It will look more ridiculous than dangerous when you see it on TV.’

A BBC spokesperson added that Freddie ‘suffered no injuries as a result of his spontaneous detour, as fans will see for themselves when we show the sequence in full in the next series’.

Freddie may have had a lucky escape, as the course was the same one that former Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond crashed on in 2006, ending up in a coma for two weeks.

The horrific smash left the Grand Tour star with memory loss and unable to recognise his wife, Mindy.

Freddie is part of the latest Top Gear presenting line-up following Richard, James May and Jeremy Clarkson’s departures in 2015.

He now fronts the car show alongside Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris.

Things seem to be going well with the new line-up, as Top Gear is set to have its first Christmas special in four years.

Top Gear will return at Christmas.
