Former F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher has reportedly suffered a head injury following a skiing accident in the French Alps.

The seven-time champion suffered the injury on Sunday morning after a fall at the French resort of Meribel.

The 44-year-old German has been taken straight to hospital in Moutiers, but director of the ski station Gernignon, Christophe Lecomte, told French radio station RMC that the injury is not life-threatening.

“He was wearing a helmet and banged against a rock off piste at 11.07am,” Lecompte said.

“The mountain relief responded quickly, at 11.15am. He was airlifted and taken to hospital in Moutiers.

“He was shocked, a little shaken but conscious. It may be a head injury but it is not very serious.“
