Medical records purported to be those of Michael Schumacher have been offered for sale and officials are investigating the theft, his agent said, one week after the seven-times Formula One champion came out of a coma.
The German driver, who suffered severe head injuries in a ski accident in the French Alps in December, was transferred from Grenoble in France to a Swiss medical centre on June 16.
“For several days stolen documents and data have been offered for sale,” Sabine Kehm, managing director of Michael Schumacher’s offices in Geneva, said in a statement on Monday.
“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,” added Kehm.
