Seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher remains in a critical condition in hospital following a skiing accident in the French Alps, doctors treating him confirmed on Monday morning. 

Schumacher, 44, hit his head after falling during a family skiing trip at the Meribel resort on Sunday morning. He was quickly taken by helicopter to hospital in Moutiers before being moved to the University Hospital in Grenoble where doctors said he had suffered "a severe head injury with coma on arrival, which required neurosurgical intervention immediately."

Addressing a news conference on Monday morning, the team treating him confirmed Schumacher will be kept in a medically-induced coma for the time being, saying: "We can say he is fighting for his life. We judge him to be in a very serious situation. We cannot tell what the outcome will be yet.

"We are working hour-by-hour but it's too early to say what is going to happen and to have a prognosis."
