Rumours continue to swirl as the world watches on.
Michael Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm has released a statement saying the former world champion is still in the ‘wake-up phase’ of his recovery and any reports suggesting otherwise are lies.
Kehm has gone into damage control after several media outlets reported neurologists feared the 45-year-old would not recovery from his medically indued coma.
The former Ferrari driver has been in sedation for more than two months after his head smashed into a rock while skiing with his family in France.
Since then Schumacher’s has been in the artificial coma after the accident at Meribel to reduce the pressure inside of his skill and maximize his chances of as full as recovery as possible.
Surgeons have already operated on the 45-year-old twice to prevent excessive pressure and also remove several blood clots formed as a result of the accident.
However, Kehm urged fans and media to be patient and not listen to half-truths, which in the past saw Schumacher passing away, forcing the Grenoble University Hospital to release a statement to the contrary.
“Michael is still in the wake up phase,” Kehm said in an official statement.
“The situation has not changed. Any medical information published which is not confirmed by the team of doctors treating Michael or his management has to be considered as not valid.”
Support for Schmacher continues to pour in from around the world, especially as the new Formula One season prepares to start in Melbourne.
Schumacher’s family and close friends have also been there for him, with several traveling from around the world to be at his bedside.
His wife, Corinna, has been a constant by her husband’s side, and spent her 45th birthday with Michael for eight hours with their children, and Michael’s brother and father.
