Rock legend Ozzy Osbourne has handed a $85,000 (GBP50,000) cheque to one of the doctors who saved his life following his quad-bike crash last month (DEC03).

The reality TV star, 55, donated the money to medical director DR DICK Jack on a surprise visit to WEXHAM PARK HOSPITAL in Berkshire, England - to thank staff for the life-saving treatment he received there.

Osbourne suffered multiple injuries in the accident which left him in hospital for two weeks.

The ex-Black Sabbath frontman told the medical team, "I've been to several hospitals in my life.

"But this is definitely the best - the service was second to none."
