GRENOBLE, France (AFP) - There has been a "slight improvement" in Michael Schumacher's condition, a source close to the Formula One legend said on Monday, eight days after a skiing accident left him with life-threatening injuries.

Schumacher remains in a critical condition in hospital where he has been in a medically induced coma since the accident on Dec 29 in the French ski resort of Meribel.

But there are small signs of improvement and his loved-ones hope that he will pull through, the source told the German sports news agency SID, an AFP subsidiary, on condition of anonymity.

Earlier, doctors treating Schumacher said he remained in a stable but critical condition.
