French footballer Jean-Pierre Adams has died at the age of 73 after spending 39 years in a coma.

Adams was 34 when he slipped into a deep coma in 1982 following an anesthesia error during routine knee surgery at Lyon Hospital.

He was said to have been in ‘great shape’ going into the operation and was expected to wake up after only a few hours.

But Adams remained in the coma for 39 years

Adams was pronounced dead on Monday at the Nimes University Hospital.

The 73-year-old was born in Dakar, Senegal, in 1948 and went on to play 22 times for the France national team from 1972 to 1976.0:000:30

According to the Blizzard, as per the Guardian, Adams was undertaking a coaching course in Dijon when he became concerned about his knee.

The footballer ended up putting the course on hold on the fourth day and headed to the hospital in Lyon for a scan.

The scan showed Adams had suffered damage to the tendon at the back of his knee, and a surgeon suggested that the best course of action was to operate

“It’s all fine, I’m in great shape,” Adams reportedly told his wife Bernadette on the morning of the operation.

Adams’ doctor while he was at PSG, Pierre Huth, led a case against the way in which the operation was handled.

The case dragged on for seven years before the Seventh Chamber of Correctional Tribunal in Lyon eventually found the doctors guilty of involuntary injury.

In 2007, Adam’s wife provided a brief update on her husband and explained: “Jean-Pierre feels, smells, hears, jumps when a dog barks. But he cannot see.”DON’T MISS
