Michael Schumacher’s family has issued another statement of thanks for the support that they’ve received from fans around the world. However, the statement did not reveal any new information on the Formula One legend’s health.

Last Friday, Schumacher’s press officer, Sabine Kehm, said that he remained in a medically-induced coma but was in stable condition – the first time that he had not been listed as “critical” since his skiing accident on Dec. 29.

The new statement from the family reads:

“We are deeply touched by all the messages to get well soon for Michael which still are being sent. That gives us strength. Thank you all so much! Thank you to the Fanclub in Kerpen, to 1. FC Köln and Schalke 04 but also to everybody else and other fan groups who are supporting Michael. We all know, he is a fighter and will not give up!”

Said statement references a pair of German soccer clubs that recently unveiled a banner before a friendly with the phrase “Get well soon! You can do it, Michael!” in German.

    I don’t know what I pushed to double post this about Schumy here but apparently I did.

    I came to this thread after the one about Michael.

    Anyway, you come after Bernie, you better have your ducks in a row.

    Just firing off accusations won’t cut it, Congrats Bernie.

    Bernie didn’t ‘duck’ anything.

    His accusers didn’t have a valid case hence case dismissed.

      Mods please delete the above posts about Bernie’s court case.

      My mouse is acting weird posting in the last thread viewed.
