Report: Michael Schumacher moved to Paris for 'secret treatment'

Report: Michael Schumacher moved to Paris for 'secret treatment'

Michael Schumacher has been transferred to a medical facility in Paris to undergo a revolutionary treatment 'in secrecy', according to French publication Le Parisien.

In 2013, the seven-time Formula 1 world champion suffered life-threatening injuries in a skiing accident in the French Alps which resulted in him being placed in a medically-induced coma for several months.

He is no longer in a coma but remains unable to speak and his physical capabilities are minimal, with details on his condition scarce due to the privacy requested by his family.

The report suggests that Schumacher was taken to the Continuous Monitoring Unit, in the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, at Georges Pompidou European Hospital this afternoon with his entourage of ten people. There he will be put under the care of surgeon Philippe Menasche, who is a leading cardiac surgeon.

The hospital has refused to confirm or deny the German's presence, but it has also been reported that Schumacher visited the facility twice earlier in the year.

F1 boss Ross Brawn, a former manager and current close friend of Schumacher, believes that his family are correct in not divulging too much information about his condition.

“I am constantly in touch with Corinna, and I totally agree with their decision," he said previously.

“Michael has always been a very private person and that's been a guiding principle in his career, his life and his family always agreed with that choice.

'It's completely understandable that Corinna has wanted to maintain the same approach, even after the tragic event, and it's a decision we must all respect.

“I'm sure the millions of people who are still Michael fans will understand it, too.”
