Schumacher wins fight against pneumonia

Motorsports: FIA Formula One World Championship 2012, Grand Prix of Bahrain

Michael Schumacher has won his fight against pneumonia, according to the Bild newspaper.

Earlier, the seven time World Champion’s spokesperson Sabine Kehm played down reports the lung infection had interrupted efforts to wake Schumacher from his long coma.

She said the great German “still is in [the] waking up process”.

Now, Bild says its sources indicate that pneumonia is no longer posing “an acute danger” to the former F1 great’s health.

“Schumacher has already won the fight against pneumonia,” the report claimed. (GMM)
