7-times Formula One world champion, Michael Schumacher is no longer in a coma and has left the hospital in Grenoble, France where he’d been receiving treatment after being involved in a skiing accident on December 28th 2013 in the slopes of Meribel in the French Alps that left him with severe head injuries.
Schumacher had been an artificially-induced coma for over five months before he was moved out of intensive care into a rehabilitation ward. His managr released a statement today Monday June 16th
‘Michael has left the CHU Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore. The family also wishes to thank all the people who have sent Michael all the many good wishes. We are sure it helped him. For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye.”
The Formula One legend, said to be worth over $600million, has a long way to recovery though, which will include physiotherapists, doctors, nutritionists, nurses and neurological experts.
