Corinna Schumacher, the wife of Michael Schumacher, has said the seven-time world champion is "getting better" after being transferred to a rehabilitation clinic in Switzerland last month.

Before waking up from his medically-induced coma on June 16, Schumacher had been in a hospital for 170 days in Grenoble following the serious injury he sustained from skiing accident in December. Updates on Schumacher's condition during that time came from official statements from the family, usually through his manager Sabine Kehm.

But this week Corinna spoke to a German magazine during her first public appearance since Schumacher's accident at a horse riding tournament in Switzerland.

"It's getting better, slowly certainly, but in any case it's improving," Corinna told Neue Post.

There is still no official word on the medical documents purported to be those of Schumacher which may have been stolen and offered up for sale, which his family confirmed had taken place in June.
