Michael Schumacher's Medical Files Stolen From Hospital And Offered For Sale Online

Medical notes outlining Michael Schumacher's condition and care have been stolen and offered for sale on the Internet.

The horrifying development was confirmed by the former F1 star's management this evening, with the spokesperson warning that legal action would be carried out if any of the information contained in the documents was made public.

"For several days, stolen documents and data are being offered for sale. The offeror claims them to be the medical file of Michael Schumacher. We cannot judge if these documents are authentic. However, the documents are clearly stolen. The theft has been reported. The authorities are involved," read a statement.

"We expressly advise that both the purchase and the publication of such documents and data is forbidden. The contents of any medical files are totally private and confidential and must not made available to the public. We will therefore, in every single case, press for criminal charges and damages against any publication of the content or reference to the medical file. We trust for your understanding."

Schumacher was last week transferred from hospital to a rehabilitation facility, with medics confirming that he is no longer in a coma. It's understood that the driver, who was gravely injured in a skiing accident in December, was conscious with his eyes open when being transferred and is now able to communicate by nodding his head.
