Michael Schumacher's wife has 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.

The former German formula one champion remains in a medically induced coma since the accident on December 29th.

Schumacher's fall has generated massive media interest, with his hospital in the French city of Grenoble under siege by reporters and photographers.

In a statement Corinna Schumacher says please support our shared fight with Michael.... it's important to her that you take the pressure off the doctors and the hospital so they can do their work.
