Amid enduring media speculation, be it rumored moves for treatment elsewhere or concerning Schumacher's general mobility, any shred of bona-fide information from behind the walls of the family's lakeside Swiss mansion is news.

One such snippet was provided by Swiss archbishop Georg Ganswein, who told German magazine Bunte recently about a 2016 visit to Schumacher.

"I sat opposite him, held his hands and looked at him. His face is just as we know it, the typical Michael Schumacher face. Only a bit fuller," he said.

"He feels that loving people are around him and care for him and, thank God, keep the all-too-curious public away.

"A man who is sick needs discretion and understanding."

Jean Todt, Schumacher's former Ferrari boss who is now president of Formula One's governing body, is a frequent visitor.

He revealed last month that he had watched this year's Brazilian Grand Prix with Schumacher.

"There are pictures of him all over my offices and apartments. The time with Michael will always be remembered as the best of my life," the Frenchman told reporters.
