Michael Schumacher’s family’s touching reason for keeping icon’s health private

Michael Schumacher ’s family are respecting his wishes by not making his current condition public.

The Formula One legend suffered a life-changing injury while skiing in the French Alps in December 2013.

Little is known about how the German is doing now with Schumacher having not been seen in public since the accident.

Speaking at a meeting of media professionals back in March 2016, Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm explained why.

"In general the media have never reported on Michael and Corinna's private life," she said.

"When he was in Switzerland, for example, it was clear he was a private individual.

"Once in a long discussion Michael said to me: 'You don't need to call me for the next year, I’m disappearing.'

"I think it was his secret dream to be able to do that some day.

"That's why now I still want to protect his wishes in that I don't let anything get out."

Schumacher turned 52 last month and is believed to be at his Swiss home, surrounded by family and nurses.

His family are set to set to release rare footage of the seven-time world champion in a new documentary.
