Glenn Hoddle "responding well" to treatment, remains in serious condition

Glenn Hoddle collapsed at a TV studio this morning and is “seriously ill” in hospitalMore

The former England and Wolves manager was taken seriously ill at the BT Sport studios on his 61st birthday, with BT's afternoon live scores show cancelled as a result.

"Best wishes to Glenn Hoddle, who has been taken to hospital after falling ill before his pundit appearance on BT Sport today".

The broadcaster announced news of his illness in a statement on Saturday morning but later issued an update, which was read on air by his colleague, presenter Jake Humphrey. We're right with you, Glenn'.

Hoddle collapsed while working at BT Sport on Saturday and was taken to hospital, where he is "responding well to treatment" on the day after his 61st birthday.

Hoddle was capped 53 times for England and was an integral player for Tottenham during his time at the club.

"His family are with him and would like to thank everyone for their support".

He worked at the 2018 World Cup as part of ITV Sport's team in Russian Federation having acted as co-commentator for England internationals for a number of years previously, while he is also a regular on BT Sport's coverage of the Premier League, Champions League and Europa League.

'The family are grateful to everyone in the football family - and beyond - that have sent kind messages of support, they are very much appreciated.

Former England team-mate Gary Lineker wished Hoddle well, writing on Twitter: "Hugely worrying news that Glenn Hoddle collapsed at the BT studios earlier". Ironically, it was as a football pundit that the public came to fully appreciate Glenn Hoddle. "All our thoughts are with Glenn Hoddle and his family".

The Football Association, via the England team account, wrote: 'Worrying news. "Get well soon, Glenn Hoddle, we're all behind you".

Hoddle guided his country to the 1998 World Cup finals in France, but his tenure ended acrimoniously when his contract was terminated after an interview in which he expressed controversial beliefs about disabled people. He burst on the scene in the mid-1970s as an outstanding ball-playing midfielder with Tottenham, and spent 12 years with the London club before joining Monaco.
