Journo tried to access Schu's room

Journo tried to access Schu's room

A journalist disguised as a priest has attempted to gain access to Michael Schumacher's hospital room.

Schumacher was admitted to the Grenoble University Hospital on Sunday after suffering head trauma in a skiing accident at Meribel.

The German has undergone two life-saving operations to reduce the pressure on his brain which is being caused by swelling.

His family on Monday released a statement in which they asked "the media to respect the privacy of us and our friends and thank them for their support."

However, one journalist tried to invade the former racer's hospital room.

"Apparently a journalist dressed as a priest had tried to gain access to Michael's room," Schumi's official spokesperson Sabine Kehm told Die Welt.

"I wouldn't have ever imagined something like this could happen.

"As soon as his disguise was recognised, he expelled from the hospital."

The journalist and the publication have not been named.
