The father is living alongside close family members in the main body of a £50m ($62,996,100) mansion on the banks of Lake Geneva.

Schumacher will turn 50 on January 3 - just five days after the anniversary of the life-changing tragedy and his medical condition has been kept closely under wraps since it happened.

Earlier this year, Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm said that the family appreciate the 'empathy' coming from fans but added that they want to keep details about his health private.

She said: "What can be said is that the family really appreciates the empathy of the fans.

"The people really do see and understand [his health situation] is not to be shared in the public eye."

Schumacher was on holiday with his 14-year-old son Mick when tragedy struck in December 2013. He fell, hitting the right side of his head on a rock, with such force his helmet split open.

He was rushed to hospital where surgeons removed blood clots from his brain, however, some had to be left behind as they were so deeply embedded.

He was stabilised and placed into a medically-induced coma, and was later brought round.
