A photograph of Michael Schumacher in hospital following his live-changing skiing accident in 2013 has been offered for sale for one million Euros.
Reports in Germany state that the image was taken in "close proximity" to the seven-times world champion who suffered a near-fatal brain injury after falling while skiing in the French Alps with his son Mick on 29 December 2013.
"An unknown person has offered to publish secretly made photo shoots of Michael Schumacher for high amounts of money for the publication," RTL quotes, via VIP.de.
Recently, Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm quashed any hope of an official update of Schumacher's condition, insisting that it is "not a pubic issue".
"Michael's health is not a public issue, and so we will continue to make no comment in that regard," she said in a statement on Saturday. "We have to protect his intimate sphere. Legally seen and in the longer term, every statement related to his health would diminish the extent of his intimate sphere."
