Michael Schumacher’s manager has issued a statement confirming the seven-times world champion has returned home from hospital, nine months after suffering serious head injuries in a skiing accident.
The statement gave no further details of Schumacher’s condition but noted he still had a long way to go in his recovery.
“Henceforth, Michael rehabilitation will take place at his home,” said the statement issued on Tuesday.
“Considering the severe injuries he has suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months. There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead.
“We would like to extend our gratitude to the entire team at CHUV Lausanne for their thorough and competent work.
“We ask that the privacy of Michael’s family continue to be respected, and that speculations about his health are to be avoided.”
