Michael Schumacher has not woken up from his coma despite reports earlier this week to the contrary.
The F1 legend’s manager Sabine Kehm has denied widespread claims that she had told German broadcaster RTL that Schumacher had regained consciousness and recognised his wife.
“Sorry, but those rumors from Spain are apparently not true,” said Bild reporter Nicola Pohl, as quoted by Fox Sports.
“Kehm just texted me (saying) she hadn’t confirmed anything to RTL.”
Kehm herself later verified that the reports were unfortunately false.
“Since doing the ARD talk show [two weeks ago]… I have not spoken to anyone about Michael Schumacher,” she told German newspaper Kolner Express.
Schumacher has been in a coma for the last 17 weeks after sustaining head injuries in a ski accident.
