One of the greatest Formula One racers, Michael Schumacher, got in a skiing accident that led to brain injuries in December 2013. Since then, it had been a long road to health recovery for Michael Schumacher
A latest Michael Schumacher health update has made its way in a French newspaper. Reportedly, the iconic F1 star is “conscious” after undergoing stem-cell treatment in Paris. If true, this is a piece of big news for his fans after a long spell of no updates on Michael Schumacher’s health.
The legendary Formula One star has not been seen in public for almost six years following his skiing accident
After his infamous skiing accident, the racer was put under a medically induced coma for six months. Michael Schumacher health recovery was slow but steady. Michael Schumacher fans were curious about any health update that came their way. But nothing was as positive as the latest one.
Schumacher was admitted to a Paris hospital for “secret treatment”. Moreover, it was believed that a leading surgeon has been treating the F1 legend at the Georges Pompidou Hospital in the French capital. This surgeon in question specialises in stem-cell breakthroughs.
Now according to the latest Michael Schumacher health update by Le Parisien, the icon was admitted for transfusions of inflammation-reducing stem cells. And it is reported that the state-of-the-art facility “has turned into a bunker” following his arrival at the hospital.
Can these reports be true?
Well, it is ambiguous. Michael Schumacher’s management has denied any comment of the report giving latest health update. Moreover, there has been no official statement from the hospital regarding his current health state either.
So can we really believe this health update? According to the French newspaper, yes. They have quoted an unnamed nurse who works at the hospital as their source. And this nurse has claimed that Michael Schumacher has shown signs of health recovery.
A Living Legend
The widely acclaimed racer is the only driver in the history of Formula One to have won seven World Championships. In fact, he won five of these titles consecutively. But that is not all! If you were to check the Formula One website, it describes the racer as “the most successful driver in the sport’s history.”
But every good thing comes to an end, isn’t it? Schumacher retired in 2006 only to come back in 2010. And finally retired in 2012. Who knows, if it were not for the traumatic head injury, he would have come back for a third inning.
