Michael Schumacher can walk, claims magazine: manager denies

Berlin: Dec 30;  Bed-ridden Formula One legend Michael Schumacher is now able to take "tentative" steps with the aid of a carer and has regained slight movement in one arm, according to German magazine Bunte. 

The front page of Bunte on Tuesday-headlined "He can move again"-has been published days before the second anniversary of his devastating ski accident in the French Alps. 

But his management has emphatically denied the reports. 

"Unfortunately, we are forced by a recent press report to clarify that the assertion that Michael could move again is not true. Such speculation is irresponsible, because given the seriousness of his injuries, his privacy is very important for Michael," Schumacher's long time manager, Sabine Kehm, was quoted on wednesday.
