Michael Schumacher Coma- Former F1 champion, Michael Schumacher is out of coma, according to his manager Sabine Kehm.

Kehm stated that Schumacher is facing slow and difficult recovery, but is progressing. Schumacher was left in coma for almost a year after his skiing accident last December. She also added that there could be no time-frame for the F1 champion who is facing a tedious rehabilitation process.

Schumacher met a tragic accident that nearly risked the life of the F1 champion. His head injury was so severe the day he had the accident on Dec. 29, 2013 leaving the sportsman paralyzed. Michael Schumacher coma condition lasted for six months.

An earlier diagnosis of Schumacher by his French doctor says that the F1 champion's recovery could take years. According to the sportsman's manager, Schumacher family has been very grateful for the outpouring support they are receiving, and are really appreciating their concern for the F1 champ.

Michael Schumacher coma didn't last too long. After he was out of coma, he has been taken care well at his home at Gland, Switzerland, Daily Mail reports.

Former racing driver Philippe Streiff visited Schumacher and told that the F1 champion is in a wheelchair, paralyzed and has memory lapses. Although his condition is still in not in normal state, what's matter is that Michael Schumacher coma condition is already over.

After dangerous accident the 45-year-old seven- time- world champion had serious brain damage. Michael Schumacher coma state incapacitated him for a long time, where he was sleeping for some months due to the freak accident.

Schumacher was transported by air to Moutiers Hospital and was then relocated to CHU Grenoble, a bigger hospital that focuses in head injuries.

The seven- time- world champion slow recovery is yet proving the sportsman big improvement. An advanced microchip is in progress that could help Schumacher speak and walk again after his coma state. This idea was offered by Croatian doctors Darko Chudy and Vedran Deletis.

According to Streiff, who is also wheelchair-bound since a crash in Brazil in 1989, Schumacher has been communicating with his wife through blinking.

Michael Schumacher was honored as the second highest paid athlete in the world in 2004. In 2005, he was the first billionaire athlete in the world. He has an estimated $800 million net worth. Much of his accumulated wealth comes from endorsements.
