We can't really say when he'll recover: doctors on Schumacher

Doctors have given the latest update on Michael Schumacher's condition after he suffered a head injury while skiing in the French Alps:

A spokesman for the hospital said: "Michael Schumacher was the victim of very serious trauma. He was very agitated when he arrived and we decided he was in a critical situation and he quickly went into a coma.

"The neurosurgical treatment he received brought us quite a lot of information. We had to operate urgently to release some pressure in his head. Unfortunately, he has some lesions within his brain."

"Accident particularly serious. We are not able to express ourselves about his future," they said.

Doctors said he will be kept in a coma and added: "We can't really say when he'll recover." They also said that he "remains critical" and "extremely serious".

As reported earlier, Schumacher wearing a helmet went a long way in saving his life. In fact, doctors said that he would have died had he not be wearing the helmet: "Someone who had had this accident without a helmet certainly wouldn't have got here."

Doctors say they do not intend a second brain operation at the moment.
