Former Ferrari boss Jean Todt has revealed he saw Michael Schumacher last week and says the seven-time Formula One world champion is fighting to overcome the devastating injuries that have kept him out of public view for almost seven years.

Following a skiing accident on the French Alps in December 2013, Schumacher's condition has been kept a closely guarded secret from those outside his Lake Geneva home.
