An important health update. Jay Leno finally breaks the silence.

Jay Leno, the American talk show host, underwent surgery last Tuesday to heal many broken bones sustained in a motorcycle accident in early January, according to an interview he gave last Friday.

The former Tonight Show host, known for his obsession with automobiles, seemed to be in a good mood.

“A 72-year-old man is driving an 83-year-old motorcycle. What could go wrong? He cracked a joke.

Leno claims his most recent accident occurred on January 17 while test-riding a 1940 Indian four-cylinder motorcycle with a sidecar and smelled gas coming from the vehicle, two months after sustaining burns while working on cars in his garage.
