Medical staff say Michael Schumacher is “conscious” after undergoing stem-cell treatment in Paris. The Daily Telegraph reports that according to a French newspaper, Le Parisien, the seven-time Formula One champion was admitted to the Georges-Pompidou Hospital on Monday, which said he was being treated by cardiovascular surgeon Philippe Menasché, described as a “pioneer in cell surgery”.
The report says Schumacher has not been seen in public since sustaining serious head injuries in a skiing accident in 2013.
The newspaper said he was due to receive an anti-inflammatory stem cell perfusion on Tuesday and to leave hospital on Wednesday after being transferred from his house in Gland in Switzerland in an ambulance. The treatment of the former driving ace, whose precise physical and mental state is unknown, is shrouded in secrecy.
