F1 champion Schumacher recovering, leaves hospital
Paris, Sept 10: Former Formula One champion Michael Schumacher has left hospital to continue his recovery at home, said a Reuters report.

However, Schumacher has "a long and difficult road ahead" to recovery, added the report, quoting an official statement.

"Henceforth, Michael's rehabilitation will take place at his home. Considering the severe injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months," said the brief statement issued by manager Sabine Kehm. 

Schumacher's move should not be interpreted as a sign of massive changes in his health status, the statement said. "There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead."

The seven-time F1 champion Schumacher suffered severe head injuries in an accident which happened in the French Alps in late December while skiing. Initially he was kept in a medically induced coma at a French hospital in Grenoble to help reduce swelling of his brain.He was transferred to Lausanne in June after emerging from a coma.
