The medical notes made on Michael Schumacher after his skiing accident 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 had left the coma he had been in since the end of December.

Schumacher is now being treated in Switzerland as he starts his rehabilitation. He had spent nearly six months in the coma in Grenoble, where he received round-the-clock care.

The notes made about his case have been stolen, though, and anyone looking to profit from them has been warned of the consequences.

A statement from his 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. The contents of any medical files are totally private and confidential and must not made available to the public.

"We will therefore, in every single case, press for criminal charges and damages against any publication of the content or reference to the medical file."
