Schumacher released from hospital

Formula One legend Michael Schumacher is no longer in a coma and has left the hospital in Grenoble where he was being treated for serious head injuries, his manager confirmed.

The German has been in a medically induced coma since suffering a serious fall during a family skiing trip at the end of last year.

His family and manager had not released any official news about his condition for some time, but a statement was released to the public on Monday detailing the progress the seven-time World Champion has made.

"Michael has left the CHU Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore," Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm revealed.

"His family would like to explicitly thank all his treating doctors, nurses and therapists in Grenoble as well as the first aiders at the place of the accident, who did an excellent job in those first months.

"The family also wishes to thank all the people who have sent Michael all the many good wishes to Michael. We are sure it helped him.

"For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye."

Where exactly Schumacher's rehabilitation will continue is currently being kept secret in order to preserve the privacy of him and his family.

No further updates on his condition is expected in the near future.
