Many fans around the world are still clueless about the real health condition of Michael Schumacher. The Formula 1 legend previously hit his head on a rock while skiing in the French Alps on Dec. 29, 2013. The tragic accident sent Schumi into a coma and he reportedly remains unconscious up to this writing.

Recent updates suggest that Michael Schumacher is still bedridden in his home near Lake Geneva. The Formula 1 legend is, reportedly, still unconscious despite the former claims saying that he could walk and talk already. As a matter of fact, Schumi's family filed a case against Bunte Magazine last year after it reported that the German racer could walk again.

Attorney Felix Damm clarified that Michael Schumacher still cannot walk, or stand, BBC reported. He also debunked the publication's claim that the Formula 1 legend was able to take a few steps with the help of his therapists. Even Schumi's manager, Sabine Kehm, denied the report and emphasized that Michael's privacy is very important.

"Such speculation is irresponsible, because given the seriousness of his injuries, his privacy is very important. Unfortunately they also give false hopes to many involved people."
"Many can come back to life and see how their children and grandchildren grow up, what plans they have or what else happens in the family or in the circle of friends."
"We have to protect his intimate sphere. Legally seen and in the longer term, every statement related to his health would diminish the extent of his intimate sphere."
