Michael Schumacher’s condition remains stable but critical, the hospital treating him for head injuries has announced.

Doctors in Grenoble say Michael Schumacher is being continually monitored but they will not be releasing more health details.

Michael Schumacher has been in a medically induced coma for the past eight days following a skiing accident in the French Alps.

Meanwhile prosecutors investigating the accident plan to give details of their probe on Wednesday.

The state prosecutor in Albertville, Patrick Quincy, told the AP news agency that French investigators were trying to obtain smartphone footage of the accident which the German magazine Der Spiegel reported had been shot by a bystander.

Der Spiegel says that a flight attendant from Essen who was filming his girlfriend on the slopes happened to catch what he believes was Michael Schumacher’s fall in the background.

The 35-year-old planned to hand the footage over to prosecutors, Der Spiegel reported.


Monday’s hospital statement said that the medical team will not be giving details of Michael Schumacher’s treatment for reasons of privacy, and no further press conferences were planned “for the time being”.

The statement also asked journalists to refrain from reporting claims about Michael Schumacher’s health not originating from the medical team or his management.

It follows Friday’s press claims of an improvement in Michael Schumacher’s condition, which were denied by his manager.
