Michael Schumacher is “responding to instructions” as he is brought out of his medically induced coma.

His manager, Sabine Kehm, said in a statement that the 45-year-old was slowly being woken from his induced coma.

“Michael’s sedation is being reduced in order to allow the start of the waking-up process, which may take a long time,” Ms Kehm said.

The German suffered a severe head injury on 29 December when he fell and hit a rock in the French Alps. Following the accident Schumacher underwent two operations to remove blood clots around his brain. He was then placed in a medically induced coma which he is just now being brought out of.

Doctors in Grenoble have ruled out giving a prognosis for his condition in the coming days and months. But it is medically possible for someone to spend several weeks in an induced coma and make a full recovery.
