Formula One’s Michael Schumacher has been in a medically induced coma for 83 days following a head injury in ski accident in the French Alps.

Mirror News reportedly states that Schumacher is down to about 120 pounds and he has lost 25% of his body weight, leading a German doctor to speculate that he’d suffered serious muscle loss. The 45 year old suffered extensive brain injuries and will need years of intensive physical and speech therapy in order to gain back motion and speech. Mirror News also states that doctors decreased the anaesthetics keeping him under a month ago but still he is unconscious with no signs that he recognizes his external environment.
