How does one spend time after being suspended from their job due to a 'fracas' with a colleague? By spending the evening at the football it seems.

Jeremy Clarkson, host of Top Gear, was earlier this week suspended by the BBC after allegedly punching a producer in an argument about food.

Whilst an investigation is undertaken the controversial broadcaster has been suspended, with the remaining three episodes of the current Top Gear series being postponed indefinitely.

So with some spare time on his hands Clarkson went for a night at the football. He was pictured at the Champions League tie between Chelsea and Paris St Germain at Stamford Bridge, where the two teams were vying for a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.
