Schmacher medical files for sale

11:40 am on 27 June 2014

Medical files purporting to relate to seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher are being offered for sale, his management team is warning.

Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm says it's unclear whether the documents are genuine.

If they are, she says they were clearly stolen and is warning criminal charges will follow if such confidential files are bought or published.

The 45-year-old Schumacher was placed in a coma after a skiing accident in the French Alps in December.

He has now left the hospital in Grenoble and been transferred to Lausanne university hospital in Switzerland, where he's no longer in a coma.
