Schumacher hurt in skiing accident

Michael Schumacher has been injured in a skiing accident in Meribel but was reportedly "conscious" when he was taken to hospital.

According to Europe 1, the seven-time World Champ was skiing in France when he fell.

The seven-time World Champion was airlifted to the Moûtier hospital where he is reportedly being treated "for cranial trauma."

The severity of the injury is not known.

However, the manager of Meribel has told RMC Sport that Schumacher was "wearing a helmet and banged against a rock."

He added that the 44-year-old was "shocked, a little shaken but conscious" when he was taken to hospital.

Christophe Gernignon-Lecomte continued saying: "I do not know the severity of the injury.

"The police are currently conducting their investigation into the origins of the fall."

F1 journalist James Allen is reporting that his sources have revealed that "the injury is serious, but not life threatening."

Meanwhile, Schumacher's PA Sabine Kehm released a brief statement confirming the injury but not giving any details of it.

"Michael suffered a head injury in a private ski trip in the French Alps. He was hospitalised and is receiving professional medical care," she said.

"We ask for understanding that we cannot give continuous information about his health. He wore a helmet and was not alone."
