Schumacher regains consciousness in Paris hospital

first_imgRelatedPosts Hamilton wins Tuscan Grand Prix Paris police attacked, 158 arrested after PSG lost to Bayern Munich Alonso cleared for Indy 500 after US visa hurdle Michael Schumacher is “conscious” after stem-cell treatment and has been visited by former Ferrari boss Jean Todt at the Paris hospital, a report claims. The seven-time Formula One champion was seen with FIA President Todt on Wednesday after he was admitted to Georges-Pompidou hospital on Monday. Schumacher, 50, is understood to have received transfusions of inflammation-reducing stem cells. A nurse told Le Parisien: “Yes he is in my service … And I can assure you that he is conscious.” The German, who suffered a near-fatal brain injury in a 2013 skiing accident in the French Alps, is expected to be discharged. Le Parisien reported that Todt spent around 45 minutes with Schumacher before leaving discreetly on Tuesday afternoon. Todt had been in Chatres earlier attending the funeral of F2 racer Anthoine Hubert following his tragic death in the Belgian Grand Prix on August 30. It is understood that Todt, along with other Formula One associates, journeyed to visit Schumacher after the service. Indeed, Mick Schumacher, Michael’s son and an F2 driver himself, had also been at Hubert’s funeral. Mick was with his father in Meribel when the accident happened on December 29, 2013. Schumacher hit the right side of his head on a rock, splitting open his helmet. Doctors worked frantically to remove blood clots from his brain, but some were left because they were too deeply embedded. Since September 2014, he has received round the clock specialist care at his home in Lausanne, Switzerland, on the banks of Lake Geneva. He is visited only by close friends, none of whom have divulged specifics about his state of health. 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. Schumacher remains motor racing’s most successful driver, with a record 91 Grand Prix wins. He won his first two titles with Benetton in 1994 and 1995 before five in a row with Ferrari between 2000-2004. Schumacher’s family fiercely protects his privacy. Thick forest around his castle-like home and high surrounding walls provide sanctuary from fan and media intrusion.Tags: formula oneJean TodtMichael SchumacherParisStem-cell treatmentlast_img read more

Liverpool edge Arsenal on penalties after 10-goal thriller

first_imgRelatedPosts Thiago Alcantara completes Liverpool move Liverpool reach agreement to sign Thiago from Bayern EPL: Salah nets hat-trick as Liverpool beat Leeds in seven-goal thriller Anfield debutant Curtis Jones scored the winning spot-kick as Liverpool beat Arsenal on penalties after an astonishing 5-5 draw to reach the English Football League Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday. The 18-year-old kept his cool in front of the Kop to send Liverpool through after the hosts has trailed 3-1, 4-2 and 5-4 before a stoppage-time equaliser by Divock Origi. On a crazy evening it had appeared as though Joe Willock’s screamer had earned Arsenal victory, but Liverpool proved irrepressible as their barnstorming season continued. Both Juergen Klopp and Unai Emery changed their entire lineups from the weekend’s Premier League action. Liverpool took the lead in the sixth minute as Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi scored a comical own goal. Arsenal levelled after 19 minutes when Mesut Ozil, given a rare start by Emery, picked out Bukayo Saka in space and after his shot was saved, Lucas Torreira tapped home. Brazilian teenager Gabriel Martinelli scored his first goal of the night seven minutes later to put Arsenal ahead, scooping in from close range after a save by keeper Caoimhin Kelleher. Liverpool self-destructed as Harvey Elliott’s poor pass went to Ozil who played in Saka to square for Martinelli to make it 3-1. However, in the 43rd minute Elliott tumbled in the box at the other end and James Milner tucked away a penalty. Milner’s dreadful back pass allowed Ainsley Maitland-Niles to make it 4-2 but Arsenal old boy Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain crashed home a beauty shortly after to close the gap. Liverpool equalised in the 62nd minute when Jones played in Origi who turned superbly to fire into the roof of the net. Willock’s goal sent Arsenal’s fans into raptures again but Origi scored with almost the last kick of the game.
