Michael Schumacher’s family said yesterday that they continue to “strongly believe” that the Formula One legend will recover from a life-threatening skiing accident.

Schumacher has been in a coma since the accident on December 29 and a family statement 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.

“As often in such situation, no day is like the next. The family is thankful for one’s understanding that they would not wish to disclose medical details in order to protect Michael’s privacy. As assured from the beginning we will continue to communicate any decisive new information on Michael’s health state. We are aware that the wake up phase can take a long time.

“The family continues to strongly believe in Michael’s recovery and place all their trust in the doctors, nurses and nursing auxiliaries team. The important thing is not the speed of the recovery but that Michael’s healing process progresses in a continuous and controlled way.”

Schumacher’s spokesman announced on January 30 that the drugs used to keep him in a coma were being reduced with a view to bringing him back to consciousness.

Schumacher has been in intensive care in Grenoble University Hospital since the accident in the Alpine resort of Meribel, where he fell and hit his head against a rock after venturing on to a small off-piste section. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
