Red Symons in hospital following fall

ABC Melbourne Breakfast presenter Red Symons is in hospital after hitting his head following a fall over a week ago.

The network released a statement from the former Hey Hey Its Saturday star explaining his absence from his usual morning slot.

“Hello everybody! Just over a week ago, on Wed 5 July, when walking home from the supermarket I experienced a sudden lack of consciousness. This resulted in a fall, with my head hitting the pavement,” Symons’ statement read.

“I am currently in hospital, thankful to be receiving the best of medical attention and working on a speedy recovery.

“I’m sorry for this unexpected absence, but I’m looking forward to getting back to work as soon as possible.”

Symons had been mysteriously off-air all last week, with presenter Libbi Gorr taking over hosting duties.

Last month, Symons, 68, was forced to apologise on-air following a controversial interview with ABC podcaster Beverley Wang, where he asked her “what’s the deal with Asians?”.
