The Formula 1 legend will continue rehabilitation at an undisclosed location

Seven-time Formula 1 world champion, Michael Schumacher, after being in a coma for 170 days in a Grenoble, France hospital, has reportedly woken up and been released.

An official statement from Schumacher’s long-time manager, Sabine Kehm, says:

Michael has left the Grenoble hospital to continue his long period of rehabilitation. He is no longer in a coma.

His family would like to expressly thank all physicians, nurses, nurses and therapists in Grenoble, as with the first responders at the scene, who have done an excellent job in these first months.

The thanks of the family also goes to all the people who have sent Michael so many good wishes. You sure have helped him.

Going forward, we ask for your understanding that his further rehabilitation should take place outside of the public.

While the worst looks to be behind the F1 legend, he will probably have a long journey of rehabilitation before making any kind of public appearances. He can reportedly communicate with his family however.
