Jean-Pierre Adams, a European soccer star who had been in a coma for nearly four decades after a botched medical procedure, has died.
Paris Saint-Germain, one of Adams' former clubs, announced his death Monday in a statement on its website. He was 73.
"His love of life, charisma and experience quickly brought respect," said the club.
It also sent condolences to Adams' family and his wife, Bernadette, who cared for Adams at their home in the suburbs of Nîmes, in the south of France.
