On Monday, it was announced that Schumacher was no longer in a coma and had been transferred to a hospital in Switzerland.

The motor racing star suffered a head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps in December, and was subsequently put into an artificially-induced coma a few days later.

He was receiving treatment in a hospital in Grenoble, France but has now been moved closer to home to begin his rehabilitation.

His management company said in a statement: "Michael has left the CHU Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma any more."

Schumacher's family expressed their gratitude to all those who have played a part in the process over the past five and a half months.

The statement added: "His family would like to explicitly thank all his treating doctors, nurses and therapists in Grenoble, as well as the first aiders at the place of the accident, who did an excellent job in those first months.

"The family also wishes to thank all the people who have sent Michael all the many good wishes. We are sure it helped him.

"For the future we ask for understanding his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye."

University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV) in Switzerland confirmed that Schumacher had been transferred there.
