'Please support'

Thursday, January 09, 2014

Michael Schumacher's wife called on reporters to stay away from the French hospital where he is being treated for life-threatening injuries from a skiing accident, and to leave their family alone.

"Please support our shared fight with Michael. It is important to me that you take the pressure off the doctors and the hospital so they can do their work," Corinna Schumacher said in a statement addressed "to the media".

"Please have faith in their statements and leave the hospital. Please also leave our family in peace," the wife of the Formula One legend said on Tuesday.

The former German champion remains in a medically induced coma since the accident on December 29 in the French ski resort of Meribel, where he owns a chalet.
