'Schumi could return home soon'

Michael Schumacher continues to make good progress following his move to a Swiss rehabilitation centre and could return home soon, according to reports.

The Formula One legend, who spent more than six months in a Grenoble following his skiing accident on December 29, was transferred to the Lausanne clinic in June.

However, reports claim he could be moved to his Swiss home before the end of the month as his recovery is going well and he is able to communicate with his family by moving his eyelids.

"There are signs that Michael will leave the clinic soon and be cared for at home," Swiss newspaper SonntagsBlick revealed.

Meanwhile, the Mirror reports "it is understood that while Schumacher remains paralysed, he is able to answer questions from his wife and children Gina-Maria, 17, and son Mick, 15, by fluttering his eyes".

It adds that "doctors at the clinic in Switzerland hope to have Michael sitting upright in an advanced electronic wheelchair that he can control via his mouth within a few weeks".
