Schumacher is receiving treatment at his home in Gland, Switzerland, after suffering brain injuries when he slammed his head against a rock.

He had two operations to remove potentially fatal blood clots and was then put into a medically induced coma, but he was allowed to leave hospital in September after being treated first in a hospital in the French city of Grenoble and then in a clinic in Lausanne, Switzerland.
