BERLIN (AFP) - Michael Schumacher's wife called on reporters on Tuesday to stay away from the French hospital where he is being treated for life-threatening injuries from a skiing accident, and to leave her family alone.

"Please support our shared fight with Michael. It is important to me that you take the pressure off the doctors and the hospital so they can do their work," Corinna Schumacher said in a statement addressed "to the media".

"Please have faith in their statements and leave the hospital. Please also leave our family in peace," the wife of the Formula One legend said.
