Former France defender Jean-Pierre Adams dies after 39 years in a coma

Former France defender Jean-Pierre Adams has died at the age of 73, 39 years after falling into a coma following an anesthesia error on Monday. In 1982, Adams was administered a near-fatal dose of anesthesia ahead of a routine knee operation, which caused brain damage.

The 73-year-old played 22 games for the France national team from 1972 to 1976. Jean-Pierre Adams played the majority of his club career with Nice. He played for Nimes from 1970-73. He also made 41 appearances for Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain from 1977-79. Adams won 22 caps for Les Bleus in the 1970s. In the 1971-72 season, Adams contributed four goals in all 38 games to help Nimes to a best-ever second place, also winning the Cup of the Alps.

“PSG has lost one of its glorious former players. PSG offers its condolences to his family and loved ones,” the Ligue 1 club said in a statement.

“This morning, we learned about the death of Jean-Pierre Adams. He played for Nimes on 84 occasions and alongside Marius Tresor, he formed the “Black guard” in the French national team. The club offers its most sincere condolences to his loved ones and family.” Nimes club wrote on Twitter.
