The House of the Beautiful Sleeping Athlete

In 1982 the French international Jean-Pierre Adams went to hospital and was given anaesthetic that should have knocked him out for a few hours. 33 years later, he has still not woken up. In Episode Three of the Blizzard Podcast we look back at Robin Bairner's 'Sleeping Giant' from Issue Twelve, published in March 2014. We're keen to hear your feedback and suggestions on these new podcasts - email, or find us on Twitter @blzzrd. Robin Bairner is a French football writer primarily found working for Goal.
