Michael Schumacher’s manager has confirmed that the seven-time Formula One World Champion remains in a medically-induced coma, four weeks on from his accident.

The German remains in a stable condition, following his two operations since he suffered a severe head injury skiing on Sunday 29th December 2013.

The former Jordan, Benetton, Ferrari and Mercedes driver has remained at the French hospital in Grenoble throughout his treatment.

There has not been an update from the doctors at Grenoble since early January when they confirmed that they had performed two operations on Schumacher, the first was to ease the pressure on his brain, with the second procedure removing a large hematoma from the left-hand side of Schumacher’s brain.

Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm has moved to deny reports in the media regarding his current condition and in a short statement said: ‘Unfortunately I have to repeat that any information regarding Michael’s health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be treated as pure speculation, I also repeat that Michael’s family is very happy and confident with the work of the team of doctors treating Michael, and they trust them completely. Michael’s condition is still considered as stable.’
