Several fans were devastated when Michael Schumacher was left comatose after suffering from a perilous head injury while skiing in the French Alps. Now, three and a half years later, the Formula One legend shows no signs of improvement on his health condition that forced some to believe that his recovery is already an empty dream.

German racer’s still recovering despite malicious reports

Sportshounds reported that Michael Schumacher is still confined to a bed in his manor near Lake Geneva. While the legendary racer is continuing his treatment and medications, his family have kept mum about his latest health condition.

Just last month, a German magazine called Bunte was fined 50,000 euros after it misleadingly reported that Schumacher can now walk again. The publication claimed that an unnamed source revealed that Schumacher was able to take a few steps with the help of his therapists.

Attorney Felix Damm, the lawyer of the Formula One legend, quickly debunked the claims last year. He even accused Bunte magazine of invading the privacy of Michael Schumacher and his family.

Damm divulged that Schumacher is not capable of standing up by himself and that he would need the help of his therapists. He also indicated that the German publication was spreading baseless rumors that give false hopes to his client’s fans, The Christian Post reported.

Agent Sabine Kehm stated that the verdict reflected the personality of Michael Schumacher, who does not want to publicize all the details of his personal life. She added that the decision to keep the privacy of the German racer from the public has been met in his interest.

What happened to the Formula One legend?

Meanwhile, most fans can recall that the tragic incident happened in December 2013.

While skiing with his son at the exclusive Meribel resort, Schumacher fell down and hit his head on a rock.

The F1 champion suffered serious brain injuries despite wearing a helmet. He was then admitted to Grenoble Hospital where he underwent two life-saving operations.

In August 2015, it was announced that Michael Schumacher was no longer in a coma and had left the hospital.

Despite the scarcity of information about the racer’s latest health condition, his close pals have remained positive that he will successfully find a light at the end of the tunnel.

“As I know his strength, I dream that he will soon be among us again,” Luca di Montezemolo told Courier Dello Sport, cited the DailyStar. In a separate interview, Sabine Kehm has said that the health of Michael Schumacher is not a public issue so she will keep mum about the Formula One legend’s latest condition.
