GRENOBLE (AFP) - Formula One legend Michael Schumacher remains in a stable condition after his December 29 skiing accident, his spokeswoman said Friday, after a wave of speculative reports that he may never recover.

"Michael's condition is still considered as stable," Sabine Kehm said of Schumacher, who has been in a medically-induced coma since his life-threatening off-piste fall in the French Alps.

"Unfortunately I have to repeat that any information regarding Michael's health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be treated as pure speculation," she said.

"I also repeat that Michael's family is very happy and confident with the work of the team of doctors treating Michael, and they trust them completely." Investigators probing the crash have ruled out faulty skis, inadequate signage and excessive speed as reasons for the accident, in which he slammed his head against a rock.
