Michael Schumacher's wife Corinna says that her husband is "getting better" after he came out of a coma following six months in hospital being treated for head injuries.

Michael Schumacher's wife Corinna has revealed that life is 'slowly getting better' for the Formula 1 legend seven months after he suffered serious head injuries in a skiing accident.

The seven-time world champion's management confirmed last month that the 45-year-old is no longer in a coma and has left the Grenoble hospital where he was being treated following the accident on December 29.

Schumacher was placed in a medically-induced coma after he hit his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in the French Alps.

Corinna told magazine Neue Post: "It's getting better, slowly certainly, but in any case it's improving."

Schumacher is now in a separate facility to continue his rehabilitation.
