Michael Schumacher “spotted” in Majorca for first time since 2013
Formula One legend Michael Schumacher has been spotted recovering from his devastating skiing injury in his holiday home in Majorca.
Schumacher has not been seen in public since 2013, after a horrific skiing accident left him in a coma for five years.
The Formula One legend had people thinking he was being taken care of in his home in Switzerland ahead of a permanent move to Majorca, but it appears he’s spent the holidays at the luxury villa he owns before heading back to his home in Lake Geneva.
Schumacher spent Christmas, New Year's and his milestone 50th birthday in Majorca.
He was spotted arriving on a helicopter at Port D'Andratx in Majorca, German magazine Bunte reported.
The villa that Schumacher was taken to in the Spanish island’s mountains features two swimming pools, a large garden and a helipad.
Schumacher’s family have dismissed suggestions he’s relocating to the island and have said that they’ve bought the home as a holiday home.
A German archbishop last month had seen the Formula One legend, saying that he looked the same, but his face had “become a little fuller”.
He also approved of the family’s tenacity to keep Schumacher out of the eyes of the public.
Georg Ganswein told The Express that Schumacher himself “senses that loving people are around him, caring for him and keeping the overly curious public away”.
His family have kept his health battle extremely private and have said repeatedly that it is not a matter for the public.
