Former France international defender and PSG star, Jean-Pierre Adams has died at the age of 73.
He was confirmed to have died on Monday morning at Nimes University Hospital.
In his active footballing days, Jean-Pierre Adams plied his trade with big French clubs like OGC Nice and Paris Saint-Germain. His career suffered a nosedive when he walked into the theatre in Lyon to undergo surgery on his injured knee.
A blunder ensued in the process of the surgery which has led the footballer to remain in a coma for nearly 40 years. The incident happened in 1982 when he was aged 34 at the time.
He was born on March 10, 1948, and he turned 73 in March 2021. He stayed in coma since that time and he never saw the light of the day.
For nearly four decades, the Senegalese-born footballer remained bedridden. Adams’ life was horribly turned upside down following a botched operation on his injured knee.
