Michael Schumacher’s tragic ski incident in December 2013 sent shock waves across the F1 fraternity, as their hero had suffered a life threatening injury, one that kept him in coma for 6 long months and has kept him off the public eye ever since.
Updates about his health and well-being have been scarce, owing to the family’s decision of keeping his treatment and well-being away from the public eye.
Schumacher has been moved into a luxury home in Switzerland where he is being taken care off by doctors 24*7.
A German Archibishop had visited Schumacher and has provided an update on his health and how he is coping with the tragic incident.

The Archibishop conceded that while his condition hasn’t changed a great deal, his face is a little fuller and he senses that people who love him are around him.
“I sat opposite him, took hold of both hands and looked at him,” the Archibishop said, as reported by Bild.
“He senses that loving people are around him, caring for him and, thank God, keeping the overly curious public away. Of course, I include Michael Schumacher and his family in my prayers.” he added.
Schumacher had always wanted to be away from public light post retirement, as claimed by his manager in 2016, and that is why any information about his health is still being held private.
“Once in a long discussion Michael said to me: ‘You don’t need to call me for the next year, I’m disappearing.’
“I think it was his secret dream to be able to do that some day.
“That’s why now I still want to protect his wishes in that I don’t let anything get out.” his manager said.
