Michael Schumacher’s management has released the first update in just over three weeks on the seven-time world champion. His condition remains unchanged as doctors continue the process of bringing him out of his medically-induced coma following his skiing accident in December.

“Michael is still in the wake up phase,” read Friday’s statement. “The situation has not changed. Any medical information published which is not confirmed by the team of doctors treating Michael or his management has to be considered as not valid.”

Schumacher, 45, was placed in an induced coma in Grenoble's University Hospital in France after falling and hitting his head on a rock during a family ski trip. The German’s medical team began reducing his sedation at the end of January.
