Hoddle 'responding well' to treatment

The former England manager was taken ill during the football results shows on BT, which has been cancelled as a result of Hoddle's illness.

Match Of The Day presenter Gary Lineker, a former England team-mate of Hoddle, tweeted: 'Hugely worrying news that Glenn Hoddle collapsed at the BT studios earlier.

The former Spurs midfielder earned 53 England caps and was considered to be one of the players of his generation.

A spokesman for the Tottenham legend said: "The condition is serious but Glenn is now receiving specialist treatment and responding well". Glenn's somebody I've known from the age of 12 or 13. Get well soon, Glenn'.

'Thoughts are with him and his family.

BT Sport presented Mark Pougatch said: "You will understand why there's no BT Sport Score this afternoon".

Glenn Hoddle is in hospital after being taken seriously ill.

'Earlier today, I'm sad to say, Glenn Hoddle was taken ill.

The Hayes-born former Chelsea manager, who also played for the Blues and later had a spell coaching at QPR, now works as a pundit.

Hoddle played alongside Chris Waddle at club and global level and he tweeted: "Get well soon Glenn our thoughts are with you".

One of those who played under him, Rio Ferdinand, said recently the Three Lions would have won a World Cup if he had stayed on.

Hoddle was appointed England manager in 1996 and led them to the second round of the 1998 World Cup in France, losing on penalties to Argentina.

"We hope he's able to come through this situation in his life".

Swindon Town added: "We would like to take this moment to send our support and best wishes to Glenn Hoddle". He went on to marry Vanessa Colbourn in 2000, but split from her in 2015.
