Michael Schumacher's fans have been waiting to hear about his recovery for years now

According to the reports, Schumacher was admitted to Georges-Pompidou European Hospital in Paris to be treated by Professor Philippe Menasche, a well-known cardiothoracic surgeon who is recognized for his work with stem-cell-based treatment plans which he uses to help fix damaged hearts.

A report from French newspaper Le Parisien claims that the ex-F1 driver was admitted to the state-of-the-art Georges Pompidou Hospital in Paris earlier this week for transfusions of inflammation-reducing stem cells.

The seven-time Formula One champion hasn't been seen in public since a skiing accident in 2013 where he suffered serious head injuries.

A nurse told Le Parisien that he might be showing signs of recovery, The Telegraph reported.

The unnamed nurse was quoted saying, "Yes he is in my service", the nurse revealed. "And I can assure you that he's conscious".

The Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A30s both feature a triple rear camera setup and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The Galaxy A30s has a 6.4-inch HD+ Infinity-V Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1560 x 720 pixel.

Professor Menasche is in charge of a group of about 10 people responsible for Schumacher's care and security.

The athlete was spotted arriving at Georges-Pompidou Hospital on Monday riding in an ambulance registered in Geneva, the newspaper reported this week. Mr Schumacher's entourage have issued no comment on the report and the hospital has made no statement about his presence or health. It is believed that he is paralysed and unable to speak.

He later emerged from the coma and since September 2014 the racing champion has been receiving specialist care at his home in Lausanne, Switzerland.

While the details of Schumacher's treatment aren't clear, the use of stem cells in the F1 legend's treatment plan isn't out of the question given his doctor's specialization.

"Michael is in the best hands and is well looked after in his house". "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". "He does not give up and keeps fighting".
