Police enforcing calm around Schumacher home
Swiss police are enforcing calm around Michael Schumacher's house.
This week, the F1 legend returned home to his estate on the shore of Lake Geneva following eight months in hospitals in France and Switzerland.
Although it was warmly welcomed as good news the world over, the development led to swarms of photographers and television crews flocking to the house in Gland, Switzerland.
Reportedly, a Russian news agency even set up a live stream outside Schumacher's home.
According to Germany's Bild newspaper, "The police of Gland responded quickly. They patrol Schumacher's estate on Lake Geneva all night, sending photographers and broadcasters away."
A police spokesperson confirmed: "We do not want intrusive people disturbing the calm around the house."
Bild said the first hours of Schumacher's return home went smoothly, as he is attended to by a full-time medical team including nurses and physiotherapists.
