Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher has been in coma since late December, following a skiing accident and has shown very little signs of recovery.

BBC Journalist Jennie Gow collected messages of the seven-time Formula 1 world champion's fans and posted them on her website.

Though a majority of the greetings were from the UK, Schumacher's fans from Turkey, South Africa, India, France, Philippines, US, and Ireland also contributed to Gow's initiative.

"Thank you to everyone who got in touch to send a message to Michael Schumacher and his family. We, as ever, hope and pray that we have some good news soon," she wrote.

Omer Bas from Turkey wrote: "Hey Schumy! Did u remember to came Bursa-Turkey

firstly you. For see this smile again, wake up please..."

Chris from England shared: "You honked your horn at me once. You were on a scooter riding to Spa Francorchamps in 1997 and I got in your way by mistake. I want to apologise now for the four letter word I used when I looked over my shoulder to see you on your scooter. It's not often I get to, sort of, meet a living legend! I'm praying for you, and your family, now in your difficult times and I sincerely hope you will in time a full recovery."

Meanwhile, there were rumours that Schumacher woke up from coma and recognised his wife. However, his agent Sabine Kehm denied the reports.

"Since doing the ARD talk show [two weeks ago] ... I have not spoken to anyone about Michael Schumacher," she told the German tabloid Kolner Express.

Bild correspondent Nicola Pohl was contacted by Kehm regarding the rumours.

Pohl said, "Those rumours from Spain are apparently not true. Kehm just texted me (saying) she hadn't confirmed anything to RTL."
