While experts and doctors were not too hopeful and said that a state of induced coma should ideally not last for more than two weeks, Schumacher's recovery shows the fighting spirit of the 44-year-old. His manager Sabine Khem said that he would now begin a "long phase of rehabilitation" but fans around the world would rejoice in the fact that their earnest prayers were finally answered.
