The body of a 48-year-old former athlete was found in a park in the city of Saint-Cloud near Paris. According to an eyewitness, he was supposed to jump from the roof of an unused building.
The man, who represented his country in 67 matches, apparently ended his life voluntarily due to depression that was supposed to bother him since the death of a loved one.
In 2007, he published an autobiography admitting that he was a victim of sexual abuse. After finishing his playing career, in addition to training, he also worked for the media and worked as a television expert.
