Michael Schumacher, the seven-time Formula 1 champion, is in a critical condition after a skiing accident, says the French hospital treating him.

The 44-year-old German suffered serious brain trauma, was in a coma on arrival and underwent a brain operation.

Schumacher drove for the Jordan Team in Formula One at the start of his career.

The team's former owner, Eddie Jordan, who is also a friend of Michael Schumacher, said he was "a tough a person as you could imagine".
