Gordon Ramsey has said that he is "lucky to be here" after being left shaken following a cycling accident.

The celebrity chef was involved in an accident while cycling in Connecticut, USA recently. 

Taking to Instagram, the Kitchen Nightmares presenter shared photos of his torn clothes and crushed helmet, which he added "saved" his life. 

Ramsey also shared a video on Instagram, where he shows a purple bruise, covering a huge portion of his chest. He also can be heard sharing the following message.

"Hey guys, it's Gordon. I’d like to share a very important message with you all", he said. "You know how much I love cycling and triathlons and Ironman (races) etc and this week, unfortunately, I had a really bad accident and it really shook me and honestly I’m lucky to be here". 

While his hands were shaking, Ramsey continued: "Those incredible trauma surgeons, doctors, nurses in the hospitals looked after me this week, they were amazing but honestly, you’ve got to wear helmets". 

"I don’t care how short the journey is. I don’t care… these helmets cost money, but they’re crucial, even with a kid’s short journey, they’ve got to wear a helmet now", the TV chef added. "I’m lucky to be standing here. I’m in pain. It’s been a brutal week. And I’m sort of getting through it". 

He also revealed that he was "doing OK and did not break any bones or suffer any major injuries but I am a bit bruised up looking like a purple potato".
