GRENOBLE, France, Feb 13, 2014 (AFP) - Michael Schumacher’s family said Thursday they continue to “strongly believe” that the Formula One legend will recover from a life-threatening skiing accident.

Mr Schumacher has been in a coma since the accident on December 29 and a family statement released on Thursday said he was “still in a waking up process” which could take a long time.

The statement came a day after Germany’s biggest-selling newspaper, Bild, reported that Schumacher had contracted a lung infection, and days after rumours that he had died swept social media.

The statement said: “Michael’s family would like to again express their sincere thanks for the continuous sympathy coming from all over the world. The good wishes they receive help the family and, we are convinced they also help Michael, who still is in a waking up process.
