Jeremy Clarkson has apologised to the Top Gear producer he punched after settling a £100,000 racial discrimination and injury claim.
Oisin Tymon launched the action against the presenter and the BBC after a “fracas” last March which left Tymon with a bloody lip.
“I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath,” Clarkson said.
“I want to reiterate that none of this was in any way his fault.”
Jeremy Clarkson lost his Top Gear job after punching producer Oisin Tymon in the face in a row over hot food last year.
Clarkson reportedly flew into a rage after being told he could not order a sirloin steak after a day of filming, calling Mr Tymon a “lazy, Irish c***” during a confrontation at a hotel in North Yorkshire.
During his time at the helm of the show, it wasn’t all motorcars for Clarkson. As well as speedboats, steam trains, lorries and tanks, he was often seen at the wheel of vehicles built by or for the Top Gear team
