It's been two-and-a-half years since a tragic skiing accident left Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher with severe brain injuries, and in that time, updates on the German's status have slowed to a trickle. Schumacher's agent, Sabine Kehm, broke that trend, but not in the way that fans hoped.

"Michael will not disappear but at the moment the private situation is so difficult that unfortunately no insight can be given. There must be understanding for this," Kehm said during an event promoting the F1 drivers' charity soccer match, Fox Sports reports. "We just have to accept that the family wants to continue to protect their privacy."

The last significant report on Schumacher's health came in October of 2014, less than a year after his accident. At that time, a doctor said there had been "some progress" in the recovery and that Schumacher could be rehabilitated in one to three years. We're hopeful the progress continues.
