Picture: Bundesliga players send a special message to Michael Schumacher with touching banner

Players from Schalke 04 and FC Köln unveiled a banner in honour of Michael Schumacher before their game today

Schalke and FC Köln come face to face today in a friendly match, with the Bundesliga still not back from its winter break. Since the last time that clubs from the Bundesliga have played, German legend Michael Schumacher has suffered a serious skiing accident, and is still in a medically induced coma as a result.

Obviously, both sides wanted to make some form of gesture to honour the great driver, and before their match today, they held up a banner sending their best wishes to Schumacher.

The banner reads: "Get well soon! You can do it, Michael!", and they're certainly not alone in sending that message.
