Former Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher has been admitted to a Paris hospital for quote "secret treatment." The news was announced by French newspaper Le Parisen on Monday (September 10).
The 50-year-old has not been seen in public since a skiing accident in the French Alps five years ago.
It left him with severe head injuries and in a medically-induced coma for several months.
The paper said the former champion would receive treatment based on stem-cell transfusion by French surgeon Philippe Menasche in the capital's Pompidou hospital, without citing its sources.
Both the hospital and a spokeswoman for Schumacher refused to comment.
He's still motor racing's most successful driver, with a record 91 Grand Prix wins.
He won his first two titles with Benetton in 1994 and 95 before five in a row with Ferrari between 2000 and 2004.
In January his family released a statement saying he was in, "the very best of hands."
