Michael Schumacher has been injured while skiing in France, media reports said on Sunday.

The incident occurred off-piste at the Meribel ski resort, where the seven time world champion has a chalet.

Former Ferrari and Mercedes driver Schumacher, 44, was wearing a helmet while skiing with his 14-year-old son when he fell and struck his head on a rock.

The German was airlifted to hospital, according to resort director Christophe Gernignon-Lecomte.

"He was in shock, a little agitated, but conscious," he is quoted by RMC Sport.

"It could possibly be a cranial injury but it is not very serious."

Earlier reports suggested Schumacher, who was transported from Moutiers hospital to Grenoble, had suffered a serious head injury.

But after speaking to his manager Sabine Kehm, the major daily Bild reported: "There is no danger to his life!"

Kehm said: "We ask for your understanding that we cannot give continuous information about his health. He was wearing a helmet and was not alone."

Today at 11:00 GMT there was a press-conference in which Schumacher doctor told us:

  1. Micheal is still in a (artificial) coma.
  2. He was operated just once.
  3. Michael Schumacher is still in a critical condition.
  4. Without the ski helmet he would not have lived.
