The medical notes made on Michael Schumacher after his skiing accident are believed to have been stolen and are being offered for sale, his management has said.
It was confirmed last Monday that the seven-time Formula 1 World Champion was no longer in a coma he had been in since the end of December. He is now being treated in Switzerland, as he starts his rehabilitation.
A statement from the former World Champion's management company said: "For several days stolen documents and data are being offered for sale. The offeror claims them to be the medical file of Michael Schumacher.
"We cannot judge if these documents are authentic. However, the documents are clearly stolen.
"The theft has been reported. The authorities are involved. We expressly advise that both the purchase and the publication of such documents and data is forbidden."
