BREAKING: Michael Schumacher Is No Longer Bed-Ridden After Making Progress

December 29 will mark five years since Michael Schumacher sustained a serious brain injury in a skiing accident and it is believed he is no longer bed-ridden following extensive £50,000 a week healthcare costs.

Despite reports in March understanding that the former F1 legend had been left unable to speak or walk, it is understood that he is not bed-ridden.

The MailOnline reported that Schumacher is believed to be receiving extensive nursing and physiotherapy care which has been estimated to cost more than £50,000 a week.
