Corinna Schumacher, wife to Michael, has asked for privacy following days of reporting and media speculation over the seven-time champion's health.

His wife has pleaded for the media, many of which are camped outside the Grenoble hospital in France where the 45-year-old is being treated, to leave.

"Please support us in our common fight with Michael," it read. "It is important to me that you leave the doctors and the hospital so that they can work in peace.

"I ask you to trust their statements and leave the clinic. Please leave our family in peace."

The hospital has been giving regular updates on Schumacher's health, but recently confirmed they wouldn't issue anymore in the coming days.

However, French authorities are due to hold a press conference on Wednesday to shed more light on how the incident itself happened.
