Schumacher's wife asks media to leave hospital
7 January 2014 – Michael Schumacher's wife, Corinna, has asked media to leave the hospital where he is being treated.
Schumacher has spent nine nights in a medically-induced coma at the Grenoble Hospital after suffering a serious head injury in a skiing accident, with media crews gathered outside from the offset.
After a hospital statement made clear that no more press conferences or press releases are planned for the time being, Corinna Schumacher has now asked for the family's privacy to be respected.
"Please support us in our common fight with Michael," she explained in a statement.
"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."
