'Hell's Kitchen's' Gordon Ramsay out of hospital after soccer injury
Gordon Ramsay, the ill-tempered chef and host of Fox's "Hell's Kitchen," ended up in the hospital on Sunday following an injury at a charity soccer game.
According to People, the celebrity chef suffered a particularly hard tackle from former professional soccer player Teddy Sheringham at the Soccer Aid game in Manchester, England, and was carried off the field with an oxygen mask on. Ramsay once aspired to be a professional soccer player himself, but a knee injury forced his interests to be diverted to cooking.
On Monday, Ramsay tweeted: "Thx 4 all the messages. Out of hospital after receiving amazing care from medics at ground & hospital. Bit sore but fine Gx."
Will Ferrell also suffered a leg injury during the same match, which raised $6.4 million for the charity UNICEF.
The chef's injury comes just as Ramsay is starting to promote the upcoming seasons of his two Fox shows, the 10th season of "Hell's Kitchen" and the third season of "MasterChef," both of which premiere on Monday.
