Vigil for Schumacher

10:23 am on 4 January 2014

Ferrari motor racing fans have held a vigil for Michael Schumacher on his 45th birthday, gathering outside the French hospital where the seven times world champion continues to fight for his life after a skiing accident.

A few dozen fans assembled outside the Grenoble hospital where Schumacher has been undergoing treatment since last weekend's accident in the resort town of Meribel, in which his head hit a rock when he fell while skiing off piste.

Supporters of the Scuderia Ferrari Club wore their team's red colours and carried a banner reading "Schumi, All our thoughts for you and your family."
