Formula One legend Michael Schumacher is in critical condition in a French hospital with a brain hemorrhage after a skiing accident, BFMTV television said.

Local paper Le Dauphine Libere also reported that the condition of the record seven-time F1 champion had deteriorated.

Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm had earlier confirmed that the 44-year-old sustained head injuries during a skiing accident in Meribel.

Kem said he was wearing a helmet and not alone at the time of the incident.
