Michael Schumacher is receiving treatment to help him “return to a more normal life” following his devastating skiing accident.

Little has been revealed on the Formula One legend’s condition following his incident on the French Alps in December 2013.

Though his former Ferrari boss, and close friend, Jean Todt has offered some positive news on the 51-year-old.

Speaking to Ouest France , Todt said: "I am very discreet on this subject.

"We all know that Michael had a very serious accident and, unfortunately, it had significant consequences for him.

"Since then, he has been treated so that he can be able to return to a more normal life."

Schumacher won seven world titles during a glittering F1 career, retiring for good in 2012 having initially called time on his career in 2006.
