Great news has just arrived. The family of Michael Schumacher has released a statement saying that the seven-time F1 champion is no longer in a coma, and has left intensive care in Grenoble for another hospital.
The statement says that the 45-year-old will continue his rehabilitation there, and asks for understanding that this will take place away from the public eye.
Schumacher has been in a medically-induced coma since 29 December 2013 after suffering a severe head injury while skiing in France with his family.
The family also thanked everyone for their messages of support, saying “we are sure it helped him”, and praised the “excellent job” of medical staff at the hospital in France, where Schumacher has been since his accident almost six months ago.
