Michael Schumacher remains in a critical but stable condition following his two operations since he suffered a severe head injury skiing.
The seven-time Formula One World Champion has remained in an induced coma since arriving to the French hospital in Grenoble on Sunday.
The hospital had held press conferences on both Monday and Tuesday following the accident, but on Wednesday Schmacher’s manager Sabine Kehm fielded questions from the worlds media.
‘Michael’s condition has been carefully supervised all [Tuesday] night and has remained stable this [Wednesday] morning,’
‘For the moment, the good news for today is that we will not hold a press conference because there are no significant changes. Still, the condition overall is critical.’
Doctors at Grenoble have confirmed that the second operation that Schumacher underwent was to ease the pressure on his brain.
He sustained lesions and contusions in accident, with the procedure removing a large hematoma from the left-hand side of Schumacher’s brain.
