Michael Schumacher was secretly admitted to a Paris hospital on Monday for treatment with a pioneering French surgeon.

The seven-time Formula One world champion has not been seen in public since a skiing accident in the French Alps almost six years ago

Schumacher, who turned 50 in January, was left with severe head injuries and had to be placed in a medically-induced coma for a number of months.

Doctors declared that he was fortunate to be alive.

He is understood to have been receiving medical care at the family home near Lake Geneva in Switzerland, but updates regarding his health have been few and far between.

According to Le Parisien, Schumacher was taken to the Pompidou hospital in southwest Paris on Monday afternoon.

Schumacher originally arrived in a blue and yellow ambulance registered in Geneva at approximately 3:40pm.

It’s claimed the former Ferrari driver was set to undergo treatment based on stem-cell transfusion by French surgeon Philippe Menasche, having arrived at the Continuous Monitoring Unit of the Cardiovascular Surgery Department.

The 69-year-old medic is best known for performing the world’s first embryonic cell transplant on a patient with heart failure in 2014 and specialises in stem cell research.

Schumacher remains Formula One’s most successful driver having accumulated a record 91 Grand Prix wins and winning seven world titles.

Earlier this year, on the eve of his 50th birthday, his wife, Corinna, released a rare statement as the official Michael Schumacher app was launched, to remember his successes on the track.

Her update on his condition remained vague, but it has previously been reported a 15-strong medical team looks after Schumacher at the special medical facility built in his home, with his health care bills thought to have exceeded £20million.

“We want to remember and celebrate his victories, his records and his jubilation,” Corinna Schumacher wrote.

“You can be sure that he is in the very best of hands and that we are doing everything humanly possible to help him. Please understand if we are following Michael’s wishes and keeping such a sensitive subject as health, as it has always been, in privacy.

“At the same time we say thank you very much for your friendship and wish you a healthy and happy new year 2019.”



Schumacher was arguably F1’s greatest-ever driver

Earlier this year, his former Ferrari boss, Jean Todt, revealed he had been to visit Schumacher at his home in Switzerland this year, declaring that the pair watched F1 together.

Todt declared: “I’m always careful with such statements, but it’s true. I saw the race together with Michael Schumacher at his home in Switzerland.

“Michael is in the best hands and is well looked after in his house. He does not give up and keeps fighting.”

However Todt, now head of the FIA, also stated that Schumacher struggles to communicate.

“His family is fighting just as much and of course our friendship can not be the same as it once was,” Todt added.

“Just because there’s no longer the same communication as before. He continues to fight. And his family is fighting the same way.”
