Michael Schumacher
Geneva, June 24: Medical reports of ace Formula 1 racer Michael Schumacher are said to have been stolen and are up for sale, just a week after the racer came out of his coma. The case is being investigated.

Schumacher had undergone several surgeries before he could be recovered from his coma after an accident in the French Alps left him paralysed in December. Initially, he was being treated at Grenoble and was then shifted to a Swiss medical centre on June 16.

Sabine Kehm, Schumacher's managing director, said,"For several days stolen documents and data have been offered for sale. "The offeror claims them to be the medical files 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."

She further added that charges and damages would be sought if the documents were unlawfully published. The spokeswoman for the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV) where the celebrity is now been rehabilitated refused to comment on that issue.
