Schumi being woken up - manager

Schumi being woken up - manager

Michael Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm has confirmed on Thursday that the seven-time Formula One champion is slowly being brought out of a medically induced coma.

The German racing legend is being treated for severe head injuries following a skiing accident on December 29, 2013.

"Michael's sedation is being reduced in order to allow the start of the waking-up process which may take a long time," Kehm confirmed in a statement to the press.

"The family of Michael Schumacher is again requesting to respect its privacy and the medical secret, and to not disturb the doctors treating Michael in their work. At the same time, the family wishes to express sincere appreciation for the world wide sympathy.

"For the protection of the family, it was originally agreed by the interested parties to communicate this information only once this process was consolidated."

The statement added that no further updates about his condition would be given at this point in time.
