Michael Schumacher suffered a severe head injury while skiing at the exclusive Meribel resort in the French Alps in December 2013.
The record-breaking Formula One driver was put into a medically induced coma and underwent two life-saving operations at Grenoble Hospital.
In April 2014 Schumacher – who drove for Benetton, Jordan, Mercedes and Ferrari – was withdrawn from the coma and moved to a rehabilitation ward in Lausanne, Switzerland before being brought home to Germany in September 2014.
Official updates from the Schumacher family have been few and far between since the accident. Here’s everything we know about his condition.
