Michael Schumacher's family have expressed their thanks for the messages of support they have received in the wake of the former F1 World Champion's skiing accident.
Schumacher remains in an induced coma as doctors continue to monitor the 'severe head trauma' the 44-year-old suffering during an accident on Sunday.
His family, including his wife Corinna and two children, are at Schumacher's bedside as he continues to fight for his life.
In a statement released through Sabine Kehm, Schumacher's long-time press officer, his family stated:
"We would like to thank the medical team who we know do everything possible to help Michael. We like to also thank the people from all around the world who have expressed their sympathy and sent their best wishes for Michael's recovery.
"We would like to ask the media to respect the privacy of us and our friends and thank them for their support.
