The ex-presenter of the popular program "Top Gear", Jeremy Clarkson, has paid around 100,000 pounds in damages, and issued a public apology after punching producer Oison Tymon.
Jeremy Clarkson was sacked in March 2015 after he punched producer Oison Tymon during an argument about lack of dining at the hotel they stayed in while they made recordings in North Yorkshire.
Oison Tymon, who is Irish, sued Clarkson for injuries and racial discrimination.
On Wednesday the ex-presenter of the popular TV show came with a public apology for the incident, according to the news agency AP.
According to the Telegraph, he has also entered into a settlement where Clarkson pays Oison Tymon around 100,000 pounds in damages.
"I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath.
"I want to reiterate that none of this was in any way his fault. I would also like to make it clear that the abuse he has suffered since the incident is unwarranted and I am sorry too that he has had to go through that.
"I am pleased that this matter is now resolved. Oisin was always a creatively exciting part of Top Gear and I wish him every success with his future projects.", said Clarkson said in a statement Wednesday.
