The French hospital where Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher is receiving treatment has denied wild reports that the seven time world champion is dead.

The reports spread on social networking sites including Twitter, but a spokesperson for the Grenoble hospital told the French-language news agency AFP: “The hospital denies that Michael Schumacher has died.”
