According to Mirror, Schumacher is said to be in a stable condition but there are no plans to wake him yet.

Emergency medicine expert Prof Heinzpeter Moecke said that patients in comas need limbs and joints moved daily to ensure muscles do not atrophy.

The report said that there is fear amongst doctors that Schumacher could be left in a permanent vegetative state when woken up.
