F1 champion Michael Schumacher is showing "moments of consciousness" after months in a coma, his agent has said.
Sabine Kehm said in a statement to the media that he was "making progress", adding that they remain "confident".
Doctors in France have been working to bring the seven-time champion out of a medically induced coma.
The 45-year-old German suffered a severe head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps on 29 December.
"We are on his side during his long and difficult fight, together with the team of the hospital in Grenoble," Ms Kehm said in the statement.
