First Picture Of Michael Schumacher Since His Life-Threatening Injury Being Sold For £1 Million

First Picture Of Michael Schumacher Since His Life-Threatening Injury Being Sold For £1 Million

A first photo of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher since his life-threatening skiing injury is reportedly and disgustingly being hawked around Europe for £1million.

It is not yet apparent how the picture was taken or obtained, but an investigation is currently under way to find out.

Taken in his home in Geneva, Switzerland while lying in bed in a stricken state, it is a huge invasion of his privacy and completely unethical.

The 47-year-old suffered severe injuries in France on December 29, 2013 during a skiing accident, forcing him into a medically induced coma. The fact that someone has gone out of their way to take a picture of a legend, without permission, and is now selling it for a ridiculous amount of money is absurd.

"Michael's health is not a public issue, and so we will continue to make no comment in that regard," Sabine Kehm, Schumacher's manager, said. "We have to protect his intimate sphere. Legally seen and in the longer term, every statement related to his health would diminish the extent of his intimate sphere."

Many media outlets are rumoured to have been offered the exclusive images, but prosecutors in Germany see the pictures as violation of his 'personal range of life'.


This is awful, let the man have the peace he deserves.
