    Arsenal rally round Schumi after 2-0 home win


    PLAYERS from Premier League leaders Arsenal sent stricken Formula One great Michael Schumacher a get-well-soon message after their 2-0 home win over Cardiff City on Wednesday.

    Following the match at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal's German forward, Lukas Podolski, posted a picture on Facebook of him and several of his teammates holding an under-shirt bearing the message "GET WELL SOON SCHUMI".

    In a written message, Podolski said: "Tough game, important win and we are in top position again. But our thoughts are with you, Michael. All the best wishes from AFC team to you. Poldi."

    Seven-time world champion Schumacher began the new year in an induced coma at a hospital in the French city of Grenoble, after hitting his head on a rock while skiing in the Alps.

    The German sustained severe brain injuries in the incident, but his condition was described on Wednesday as "stable".
