Michael Schumacher out of coma, left French hospital - spokesperson
Formula One champion Michael Schumacher is no longer in a coma and has left the French hospital where he was being treated since suffering severe head injuries in a skiing accident late last year.
"Michael has left the CHU Grenoble (hospital) to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore," a statement from spokeswoman Sabina Kehm read.
On Monday, his spokesman told Reuters that Schumacher had been admitted on Monday morning to University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland after leaving hospital in France.
"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 statement read.
It remains unclear where he is being transferred to, with the statement asking for understanding, saying Schumacher's "rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye."
Family members of the racing giant also thanked all his supporters and their well-wishes, saying: "We are sure it helped him."
Fans have regularly held vigil outside the hospital in Grenoble where he was being treated ever since his accident last December. Many came from all over Europe to offer their support to the racing legend.
