Gordon Ramsay has revealed the horrific injuries he suffered after having a crash while riding his bike this week.

The celebrity chef, 57, took to Instagram ahead of Father's Day to warn others to wear their cycling helmets after having a serious accident of his own.

He lifted his shirt to reveal the extensive, deep purple bruising on his abdomen and admitted he was "lucky to be here" after the incident.

See his injuries below:

He took to Instagram to share an important message, telling fans: "You know how much I love cycling and triathlons, and Iron Man etc. This week, unfortunately, I had a really bad accident and it really shook me."

Gordon added: "Obviously, I am lucky to be here. From those incredible trauma surgeons, doctors and nurses in the hospital looking after me this week, they were amazing, but obviously you've got to wear a helmet.

"I don't care how short the journey is, I don't care, you know, the fact that these helmets cost money, but they're crucial."

He told others to make sure that their children were also wearing helmets every time they went out on their bikes, and added: "Now, I'm lucky to be standing here.

"I am in pain, it's been a brutal week and I am sort of getting through it. But I can not tell you the importance of wearing a helmet."

He then lifted his chef whites to show the severe bruising on his flank, showcasing the severity of the fall he had.

Gordon added in the caption: "With #FathersDay tomorrow I have very important message for all the dads out there…WEAR A HELMET ! This week I had a really bad accident while riding my bike in Connecticut.

"I’m 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.

"I’m thankful for all the doctors, nurses and staff at Lawerence + Memorial Hospital in New London who looked after me and checked me out, but most thankful for my helmet that saved my life. Have a great Father’s Day and be safe Gx."

The Hell's Kitchen host's post was inundated with well-wishes from fans, who wrote: "So glad you’re okay chef! Wearing a helmet is a must!!"

Others added: "I’m glad to hear you’re all all right, that must’ve been a horrifying experience. Get well soon," and: "So thankful for that helmet! I couldn't imagine a world without my favorite chef in it ! Rest and take it easy. Wishing you a speedy recovery! Have a wonderful Father's Day."

Another commented: "Every moment in life is precious. Glad you’re okay chef. Happy Father’s Day", while someone else wrote: "Glad you’re ok! Take care Chef and thanks for the reminder."
