Schumacher - the world waits

Following a skiing accident in the French Alps on December 29, Michael Schumacher, the seven-time Formula 1 champion remains in a stable but critical condition in a hospital in Grenoble.

The F1 champion was skiing off-pist with his son in the French Alps when the accident occurred, causing him to hit his head on a rock. The 44-year-old German suffered serious brain trauma, despite wearing a helmet at the time. Support from millions of fans worldwide has flooded in for the popular champion, who remains in a critical condition three weeks after the accident. Jean- François Payen, the chief anaesthetist at the Grenoble University Hospital Centre where Schumacher is being treated told a press conference: "It is too early, at this stage, to make a judgement about the future of Michael Schumacher. His situation is critical."
