PARIS (Reuters) – Former Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher was admitted to a Paris hospital for “secret treatment” earlier on Monday, Le Parisien newspaper reported.

Schumacher turned 50 on Jan. 3 but has not been seen in public since a skiing accident in the French Alps five years ago that left him with severe head injuries and in a medically-induced coma.
