Former Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher has been admitted to a Paris hospital for “secret treatment”.Le Parisien newspaper reported Schumacher has been in the hospital’s cardiovascular surgery department since Monday and is in the care of cardiac surgeon Professor Philippe Menasché, who specialises in cell therapy to treat heart failure.
Schumacher is expected to stay in the hospital for two days.
The Ferrari great turned 50 on January 3 but has not been seen in public since a skiing accident in the French Alps five years ago that left him with severe head injuries and in a medically-induced coma for several months.
Schumacher was skiing with his son Mick when he fell and cracked his head on a boulder on the Combe de Saulire above Méribel. The devastating injury left him paralysed and unable to speak.
