Michael Schumacher’s spokesperson Sabine Kehm has played down reports the Grenoble hospital is preparing to bring the great German out of his month-long coma.

The news was reported by France’s influential sports daily L’Equipe, following an extended period in which official information about former F1 great Schumacher, 45, had dried up as his medical condition stabilised.

But L’Equipe on Wednesday reported that Schumacher has now entered a recovery phase, with doctors aiming to gradually ease the seven time World Champion out of his deep state of induced coma.

“I stress again that any statements about Michael’s health that do not originate from the treating medical team or his management are to be regarded as speculation,” Kehm said in a new press statement.

“I repeat that we will not comment on such speculation.” (GMM)

    so, just 1 day later it appers that “speculations” are true. I just hate it as much as I hate falso rumors when someone strictly denies true news.
