The seven-time World Champion was enjoying a holiday in the French Alps when he fell and hit his head on a rock

The sporting world was rocked to its core in 2013 when Formula 1 hero Michael Schumacher was left fighting for his life after a skiing accident.

The seven-time World Champion was enjoying a holiday in the French Alps when he fell and hit his head on a rock.

The 53-year-old was airlifted to a hospital in Grenoble, and after undergoing two surgeries, he was placed in a medically induced coma for six months to help reduce the swelling of his brain.

Michael was eventually moved to another hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland, after coming out of his coma in 2014.

But where is he now?

His family revealed that 250 days after waking up, he was allowed to return to his Lake Geneva home in Switzerland.

It’s there that he is now cared for by his devoted wife Corinna and a team of medical staff.

His loved ones keep medical updates to a minimum as they believe it should stay private, but in a Netflix documentary released in 2021, some details were provided to his fans.

“We’re together, we live together at home,” said 52-year-old Corinna, who called the skiing accident one of the unluckiest things that could ever occur to someone.

“We do therapy, we do everything we can to make Michael better and ensure he is comfortable, and to simply make him feel our family, our bond.”

Speaking about her decision to never publicly disclose the details of his injuries, Corinna said in the Netflix documentary: “We’re trying to carry on as a family the way Michael liked it and still does, and we are getting on with our lives.

“It’s very important to me that he can continue to enjoy his private life as much as possible.

“Michael was always protecting us, and now we are protecting Michael.”

Michael’s son Mick, 23, is now carrying on the family name in Formula 1.

He has amassed a decent fan base as he looks to do his father proud by becoming a star of the racing world.

Mick paid a touching tribute to his father with a heartfelt radio message after picking up an impressive 8th place finish at the British Grand Prix in Silverstone last week.
