Michael Schumacher leaves hospital for care at home

By Staff Reporter

Former Formula One champion Michael Schumacher has left a Swiss hospital to continue on his road to recovery at home.

His manager Sabine Kehm said the seven-time champion from Germany has made progress since a skiing accident last December put him in a coma.

But she added that Schumacher still has "a long and difficult road ahead".

The star has been in hospital in Lausanne since June, after spending six months at a hospital in France.

His accident happened on a vacation as he was skiing with his 14-year-old son in the French Alps.

The avid skier hit the right side of his head on a rock, cracking his helmet.

Doctors operated to remove blood clots from his brain, but some were left as they were too deeply embedded.
