General interest

Impairment
In 1984 at age 17 he collided with a car while riding a moped, which resulted in an open thigh fracture and a cervical vertebral fracture. After two months of rehabilitation he regained some feeling in his feet, however he had to undergo 15 operations to reduce inflammation in his thigh. He also sustained injuries to his internal organs which led to him undergoing two intestinal operations. (augsburger-allgemeine.de, 29 May 2016)
