Yesterday the 44 year old Formula One racing driver while out skiing with his son off piste in the French Alps fell and struck his head against a rock. Despite wearing a helmet and being initially conscious his condition merited helicopter evacuation from a local hospital to the regional hospital at Grenoble.

Today a spokesman for the hospital, Dr Payen, says he was critically injured on admission with raised intra-cranial pressure, bi-lateral lesions and contusions. Immediately neurosurgeons carried out emergency surgery. He remains in a critical state and medics would not be drawn on a prognosis, saying only that had he not worn a helmet he would already be dead.

Schumacher as well as being arguably the most successful F1 driver is a long standing and very competent skier.

After the removal of a large haematoma Mr Scumacher is reported by the Grenoble hospital to being showing 'a slight improvement' today. He remains in a critical condition, reportedly. There are alleged reports that a journalist has intruded into his sick room. Parasite!

Lots of fans showed up at the hospital in support.

He is in Grenoble, and doing better, but still in intensive care.

Lord have mercy.

According to his manager, speaking to the media earlier, the intruding journalist tried to pass as a priest but failed to bluff security at the hospital. Well done the security at Grenoble Hospital.
