Schumacher arrived at the Hôpital Européen Georges-Pompidou in Paris and transferred to the Heart Failure Surgery Unit overseen by Professor Philippe Menasche, a prominent cardiovascular surgeon and "pioneer of cell therapy".

Le Parisien, citing sources it did not name, said Schumacher has been treated at least twice previously at the Georges-Pompidou hospital, admitted each time under a false name and treated by a small medical team.

Le Parisien's report goes on to suggest that Schumacher will receive stem cells to obtain an anti-inflammatory effect throughout his system on Tuesday.

The paper says the treatment is scheduled to be administered overnight New Zealand time.

According to reports, Schumacher was placed in a medically-induced coma following the accident, and it took a further four months for him to show "moments of consciousness and awakening".

The German is still in recovery from an horrendous skiing accident in December 2013, with his condition largely unknown to the public.

Schumacher won his first world title 25 years ago and had won his first Grand Prix back in 1992.

In January, Schumacher's family released a statement saying he was in "the very best of hands".

During an interview with Radio Monte-Carlo (RMC), Jean Todt, one of the racing legend's closest friends, revealed the pair have watched F1 on TV.

"Once in a long discussion Michael said to me: 'You don't need to call me for the next year, I'm disappearing'".

"I saw the race together with Michael Schumacher at his home in Switzerland".

Le Parisien published a photo of a yellow and blue ambulance with Geneva plates that it said drove Schumacher to the hospital on Monday afternoon.

"He does not give up and keeps fighting".

How is Michael Schumacher's health now?
