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

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle is "responding well" to treatment after being taken to hospital on Saturday.

BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey tweeted that Hoddle "was taken seriously ill".

Hoddle, who turned 61 on Saturday, was preparing for work in his role as a television pundit for BT Sport when he was taken to hospital.

Former player and pundit Chris Sutton wrote on Twitter: 'Thoughts and prayers for Glenn Hoddle and his family after he was taken ill today'.

According to Hoddle's official Twitter feed, he was scheduled to analyse the 3pm kick-off between Brighton & Hove Albion and Wolves for BT Sport as part of their live Score show.

"We're right with you, Glenn". Get well soon, Glenn'. Obviously we all wish him and his family well and I hope he can make a speedy and full recovery.

A spokesman for the Tottenham legend said: "The condition is serious but Glenn is now receiving specialist treatment and responding well". As well as Tottenham, he also played for Monaco and Chelsea and managed, among others, Chelsea, Southampton and Spurs. "We're right with you, Glenn".

Earlier today a BT Sport spokesman told MailOnline: 'Earlier today Glenn Hoddle was taken ill at the BT Sport studio.

'Thoughts are with him and his family.

Former midfielder Hoddle, who won 53 caps for his country before managing the team from 1996-99, including at the 1998 World Cup in France, was celebrating his 61st birthday. Our thoughts are with you'.

Hoddle spent 12 years with Tottenham, where he was considered one of England's most technically gifted players.

He lost his job the following year after controversial remarks he made suggesting disabled people were paying the price for sins in past lives in an interview with The Times - the remarks all the stranger as he was an ardent fundraiser for disabled peoples charities. He has three children: Zara Marie, Jamie Glenn and Zoe Ann. He went on to marry Vanessa Colbourn in 2000, but split from her in 2015.
