Schumacher injury: Coma survivor on rehabilitation

Ex-Formula One champion Michael Schumacher is out of a coma and said to be beginning a rehabilitation process.

Simon Hales, who was placed into a medically induced coma for five weeks after injuring his head in a fall, said the slow recovery process "frustrated" him.

The 24-year-old, from Rutland, told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "I've had to relearn everything... eat, talk, breathe."

"I am forgetful and people do perceive me as being drunk or something like that - but I'm not."
