A skier has died after falling at the Meribel resort in France, where Michael Schumacher also famously crashed at the end of 2013.

Britain’s Telegraph newspaper said a 17-year-old who – like the seven time world champion – was wearing a helmet at the time, crashed after skiing too fast down a slope.

He reportedly suffered multiple facial and internal injuries and medics in the rescue helicopter could not revive him.
