Kehm dismisses latest rumours

Sabine Kehm, the manager of Michael Schumacher, has dismissed reports that the German racing legend had contracted a lung infection.

Reports about the seven-time World Champions' condition surfaced late Tuesday night after German publication Bild claimed that Schumacher had contracted pneumonia while he was in a medically induced coma.

However, Kehm dismissed the claims on Wednesday.

"As always, my answer is: announcements about Schumacher's health status, that are not done by his official doctors or by his management need to be treated as speculation," she told German news agency DPA.

Following his skiing accident in December last year, Schumacher has been in a critical condition, and although his sedation is gradually being reduced in order to try and wake him from his coma, chances of him making a full recovery are ever diminishing.

"Every day, every week in a coma the chances decline that the situation is improving," University of Bordeaux professor of neurology Jean-Marc Orgogozo told the Daily Mirror.
