With each passing day, the story of Michael Schumacher’s health becomes more and more suspicious.

It’s been almost two years since his skiing accident in the French Alps that left him in a medically induced coma.

Schumacher family’s repeated requests for privacy leads many to believe the shocking and heart-breaking rumours regarding the German’s health.

The latest rumour points that Schumacher just weights 45 kgs and might not speak and walk again. True or not, these rumours tend to break your heart, while everyone’s favourite fights for his life.

Amongst his millions of fans and well wishers is Philippe Bianchi, the father of Jules Bianchi who lost his life recently after his accident in the Suzuka, 2014.

“I have no news about him [Schumacher] so I can’t comment on anything because we don’t know what the sources [of the Schumacher news] are,” he declared in an interview with GrandPrix.com. “For what I can say, it is to not let go, so long as Michael is still there, he fights,” he added.


Schumacher was in an induced coma for six months after the freak skiing accident on Dec. 29, 2013. He was then transported to a rehabilitation clinic in Switzerland, where he stayed for three months before coming home to his family in their home in Lake Geneva.

Last year, Schumacher’s agent Sabine Kehm said, via Telegraph, that he “is making progress appropriate to the severity of the situation.” Although she emphasized that “We need a long time. It’s going to be a long time and a hard fight.”
