Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher remains in an induced coma in Grenoble, France following his skiing accident one month ago.

After two operations to treat bleeding and bruising on his brain the F1 legend was placed in an induced coma – where he has stayed since.

The extent of brain damage remains unknown although German media suggest he could possibly remain in a vegetative state for the rest of his life.

The 45-year-old German fell and hit his head on a rock whilst skiing in the French Alps resort of Meribel on December 29th.

The impact was so strong it smashed his helmet in half.

Schumacher is arguably the best driver in the history of the sport. He won the F1 title seven times twice with Benetton and five straight times with Italian glamour team Ferreri.

In total he won a record 91 races.
