Former England manager Glenn Hoddle is in hospital after falling seriously ill while preparing to appear on TV.

A spokesman for the Tottenham legend said: “The condition is serious but Glenn is currently receiving specialist treatment and responding well.”

Hoddle, who turned 61 today, became unwell before undertaking punditry duties on BT Sport.

Broadcaster Jake Humphrey, who works alongside Hoddle for BT, broke the news on Twitter.

He wrote: “Our friend & colleague Glenn Hoddle was taken seriously ill at the BT Sport studio this morning.

“For that reason there will be no @btsportscore – but we will be live as usual for the 5.30 ko at Leicester. Everyone of us is right with you Glenn, sending love & strength.”
