In an update no one really wanted to hear, comes word that Michael Schumacher is not doing well.

This update comes in the face of a lawsuit filed by the Formula One legend's family against a German magazine that published information to the contrary. Bunte wrote a piece stating that the Formula One world champion was actually getting better and even walking again.

Sadly, this is not the case.

During court proceedings, a lawyer for the Schumacher family had to state that Michael cannot walk or stand. The family has worked hard to keep Schumacher's recovery process private, and Bunte has published false news affecting that privacy. It's being sued because of this false report.

Michael Schumacher's accident happened back in 2013 while he was skiing in the French Alps. He was then placed into a medically induced coma so doctors could work on injuries to his head. Eventually, Schumacher was transferred to his home in Switzerland to continue his treatment.

It's the type of story we hate to report on, because there really is no news here. Still, it's worth hearing an update on Schumie's condition even if it's not the one we're hoping for. All we can do is continue to wait for something better, while holding out hope that the worst isn't around the corner.
