According to French newspaper Le Parisien, via Motorsport.com, the F1 legend has now been shifted to a Paris hospital to receive treatment from a renowned heart surgeon who specializes in stem cell treatments.

However, according to Le Parisien, Schumacher was transferred into Georges-Pompidou hospital on Monday via ambulance from his home in Geneva. The treatment was scheduled to be administered on Tuesday, it added.

Schumacher, a seven-time world champion, suffered brain damage in a ski accident almost six years ago.

Schumacher's family fiercely protects his privacy and he has not been seen publicly since the accident.

The Paris hospitals department, contacted by AFP, refused to confirm or deny the news citing medical privacy laws.

Schumacher will receive stem cells to obtain an anti-inflammatory effect throughout his system, Le Parisien suggests.

Reports indicate that Schumacher had made several previous visits to the facility in 2019 and will return home to Switzerland following the completion of his visit later this week.
