Introducing Jean-Pierre Adams who has been in a coma for 39 years after receiving anaesthetic that was meant to keep him out for a couple of hours.

He suffered the injury on March 17, 1982.

He is still tragically in a coma to this day, aged 73.

Adams’ life was horribly turned upside down following a botched operation on his knee.

He has spent over half his life in a coma as he is supported by his incredibly loyal wife Bernadette who is affectionately by his side.

Speaking last year, she told CNN: “No one ever forgets to give Jean-Pierre presents, whether it’s his birthday, Christmas or Father’s Day.”

The ex-Paris Saint-Germain defender turned 73 earlier this month.

He spends most of the day in a modified bed normally found in a hospital.

Despite his health, Bernadette continues to gift the former French international presents, including clothes and aftershave.

“We buy presents like a T-shirt or a jumper because I dress him in his bed – he changes clothes every day,” she added.

“I’ll buy things so that he can have a nice room, such as pretty sheets, or some scent.

“He used to wear Paco Rabanne but his favorite one stopped so now I buy Sauvage by Dior.”

Adams is incapable of nearly all voluntary movement with Bernadette there by his side – dressing, feeding and bathing him.

Her heroism is a sign of their unbreakable bond and when she does spend nights away from home, Adams’ carers see the difference in his mood.

She explained: “He senses that it is not me feeding him and looking after him.

“It’s the nurses who tell me, saying he is not the same.

I think he feels things.

He must recognize the sound of my voice as well.”

An unbelievably sad story with Adams and Bernadette still paying for that disastrous surgery, 39 years ago.

French soccer fans who were around in the 1970s will always remember Jean-Pierre Adams as the famous "Black Guard" at the heart of the national team's defence.

Born in Dakar, Senegal, in 1948, Adams started his professional career at Nimes before joining Nice and Paris St Germain.

In 1982, Adams was 34 and playing for a third division side, Chalon, when he went to the hospital in Lyon for an operation on a knee ligament.

He was given an anaesthetic that should have knocked him out for a few hours but, more than 39 years later, he has yet to awake.

A court later concluded that negligence by hospital staff was partly responsible for the accident.

In the mid-1990s, when a court of law adjudicated on the case, both the anaesthetist and trainee were given one-month suspended sentences and fines that translated to a $815 fine.

Jean-Pierre spent the next 15 months in hospital after the botched surgery.

While at the hospital, his wife, Bernadette Adams, continued to tend to his needs, refusing to consider euthanasia.

When the hospital said they could no longer look after Adams, he was moved to a custom-built home Bernadette had set up, naming it "The House of the Beautiful Sleeping Athlete".

Now, Adams, who turned 73 on March 10, can only open and close his eyes, hear, breath without the help of a machine and digest blended food according to an article published by CNN in 2020.

The couple lives in their home in the village of Caissargues, near Nîmes in southern France.

Each day, Bernadette looks after her husband with an unfailing love — dressing, feeding and bathing him, turning him over in his bed to avoid sores and often losing her own sleep to ensure he gets comfortable.
