Formula One legend Michael Schumacher may have racked up a whopping Pounds 14 million (116 crore INR) medical bill ever since he was left in a coma because of a horrific ski accident exactly three years ago, according to a report in The Sun.
The figure being cited by the British tabloid is based on the estimated Pounds 115,000-a-week (approximately 96 lakh INR) his family is spending on his treatment at his estate in Geneva, Switzerland.
The report added that a 15-strong team of physicians and nurses were treating him.
Little is known about his condition as those close to him have pleaded the press and fans to give them privacy.
â€œMichaelâ€™s health is not a public issue, so we will not comment on it. We are aware that this is difficult to understand for some people, but we are in perfect agreement with Michaelâ€™s attitude and can only say thanks for the understanding,â€ his manager, Sabine Kehm, said in a press release recently.
The seven-time world champion had the accident while he was skiing in the French Alps. He is said to have lost his balance which led to him banging his head on a rock. The driver was initially put in a medically induced coma.
