The 42-year-old filmed himself walking along a road while being heavily engulfed in flames, wearing just jeans and a shirt.

He smothered fire-resistant Vaseline over his face and hands to avoid getting burnt.

Hammond later tweeted: "It's for a US show called Crash Course. I get to do cool stuff and make an idiot of myself."
