Michael Schumacher's manager says the retired Formula One star now "shows moments of consciousness and awakening," more than three months after suffering serious head injuries in a skiing accident.

Manager Sabine Kehm said in a statement that "Michael is making progress on his way." She added that "we keep remaining confident."

Kehm says Schumacher's family does not intend to disclose further details.

The 45-year-old Schumacher fell while skiing in France and hit the right side of his head on a rock, cracking his helmet. Doctors operated to remove blood clots from his brain but some were left because they were too deeply embedded.
