Jean-Pierre Adams, the former French and PSG defender has died this morning.
The former defender for the French national team and Paris St. Germain died at the age of 73 after being in coma for the 39 years.
In 1982, Adams was administered a near-fatal dose of anaesthetic ahead of a routine knee operation and never regained consciousness.
He is survived by his wife, Bernadette, who has tended to him ever since, barely missing a day’s care over the last three decades.
We buy presents like a T-shirt or a jumper because I dress him in his bed — he changes clothes every day,” his wife explains at the family home near Nîmes, in the south of France, where Bernadette cares for Jean-Pierre.
our condolences to his family and friends.
