Reports have emerged out of Germany that a rogue photographer has somehow obtained photos of injured seven time Formula One World Champion, Michael Schumacher and is attempting to sell them for an exorbitant price.

RTL claims that the pictures, which are said to be the first of the F1 legend since his debilitating skiing accident almost three years ago, were taken of Michael lying in bed in his Geneva home in secret.

As such a police investigation was launched by Corinna Schumacher however the Sun reports that it has since been placed on hold.

It is said that the photos violate Schumacher's ‘personal range of life' and as such action needs to be taken against the unknown photographer.

How an unknown person was able to get that close to Michael is still to be understood, however the one good thing is that it seems as if the million dollar pictures have not made it to the European publication they were intended for.

The pics would be the last thing his fans would want to see this close to Christmas and the anniversary of his accident.
