The French hospital treating former Ferrari driver Michael Schumahcer for head injuries sustained during a skiing accident has been forced to address rumours he had died.

Social media was a abuzz with talk Schumacher had suddenly died despite reports he was responding well to treatment and was slowly being brought out of his medically induced coma.

A statement from Grenoble University Hospital said simply:  “The hospital denies that Michael Schumacher has died.”

The 45-year-old has been under constant medical care after hitting his head on December 29 last year.

Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm said in a statement recently that the former world champion was actually slowly improving in his condition, as thoughts and prayers continue to flood in from around the world.

“Michael’s sedation has recently been reduced to initiate a process of awakening which may take a long time,” she said.

Schumacher suffered the accident when he skied into a rock before bouncing off and hitting his head on a near-by rock, with investigators into the incident finding it was merely an accident as the German was not skiing at excessive speed and was very experienced in the sport.
