Michael Schumacher no longer bed-ridden: report

PanARMENIAN.Net - FORMULA 1 legend Michael Schumacher is not bed-ridden and receives nursing care costing tens of thousands of pounds a week, it has been reported, The Daily Star reports.

It is nearly five years since the racing legend fell and hit his head on a skiing holiday in Meribel in the French Alps.

The most successful Formula 1 driver in history slipped into a coma before two life-saving ops enabled him to be moved to Switzerland.

His family has kept updates on his condition to a minimum but the Daily Mail claims he is not "bed-ridden nor is he existing on tubes".

Schumacher is believed to be receiving nursing and therapy care at an estimated cost of more than £50,000 a week.

He is also living with his close family in the main body of his mansion rather than an outbuilding that had reportedly been constructed as a medical facility.

According to German magazine Bravo, Schumacher is to be moved to a clinic in Dallas, Texas.

Director of the magazine Mark Weeks said: "We have a lot of experience with patients who are suffering this kind of trauma.

"There is probably no clinic in Europe that treats as many cases as we do."
