Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff has been photographed with the England cricket team again on the mend after the near fatal top gear crash. 

The former England cricket captain was involved in a crash at the Top Gear test track - the Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey - in December 2022.

Flintoff reportedly flipped a Morgan Super 3 vehicle on the first bend at the Top Gear Test Track during filming for the show while not wearing a helmet.

The vehicle was only travelling at 22mph but was open-top, meaning when it flipped Flintoff's face scraped along the tarmac, reported the Mail on Sunday.

The presenter is said to have sustained broken ribs and serious facial injuries in the incident with Flintoff’s son Corey, revealing at the time, that his father was “lucky to be alive” describing it as a “pretty nasty crash”.

There were reports Flintoff's crash was so bad Top Gear staff who witnessed it had to be signed off work indefinitely as they struggled to come to terms with an incident described as "something you would truly want to unsee". 

The BBC revealed in November that Top Gear would be rested for the "foreseeable future" following the crash.

Andrew Flintoff "looking well" as he's photographed with the England Cricket team

Flintoff was photographed in public for the first time since the crash earlier this year while working, in a coaching capacity, with the England Cricket team.

On Tuesday (December 12) he was snapped with the team again as they took on the West Indies in a T20 match. 

The England Cricket team posted a picture of the cricketing great on X (formerly Twitter) with the caption: "Great to have you with us again, @flintoff11."

Cricket on TNT Sports also posted a picture of Flintoff presenting England spinner Adil Rashid with a cap to mark 100 T20 international caps.

Fans took to the TNT Sports post to say how well Flintoff was looking, clearly on the mend following the crash at the Top Gear test track.


One person commented: "Good to see freddie looking well."

Another said: "Yes Fred lad, good to see him in good nick again."

While a third user on X added: "Looking much more like the old Freddie facially. Great to see him back."
