Schumacher's wife Corinna asks media to leave Grenoble hospital

Although Schumacher's condition has remained stable but critical for several days, and no hospital press conferences are planned for the time being, the media presence at the hospital has still been high.

But Corinna has asked those journalists remaining at the University Hospital to now leave so that the doctors treating her husband are left alone to focus on their jobs.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, she said: "Please support us in our common fight with Michael. 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 media coverage since Schumacher's aftermath has become a major talking point, with his manager Sabine Kehm warning at the weekend against speculation regarding his condition.

"We would like to clearly stress that any information regarding Michael's health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be treated as invalid and pure speculation," she said.

French prosecutors are set to hold a press conference on Wednesday to reveal their findings in to the causes of the skiing accident that left Schumacher with serious head injuries.
