Schumacher in coma: Condition remain stable but critical

01-02-2014 00:33 BJT

Seven-times Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher was in a stable condition on Wednesday, three days after suffering brain injuries in a skiing accident.

44-year-old Schumacher is battling for his life after slamming his head against a rock while skiing off-piste in the French resort of Meribel on Sunday. His agent said he is still in an artificial coma and the "situation remained critical". Doctors operated on Schumacher on Monday to alleviate the build-up of pressure in his skull as a result of internal bleeding. He showed small signs of improvement on Tuesday, following his second operation.

Schumacher is the most successful Formula One driver of all time with a record 91 race victories. He left the sport last year after a less successful three-year comeback with Mercedes. In retirement, he remained an avid skier, skydiver and horseback rider.
