Former England football manager Glenn Hoddle was seriously ill in hospital last night after collapsing in a TV studio on his 61st birthday.

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.

"Our thoughts are with former Blues boss Glenn Hoddle who has been taken seriously ill on his 61st birthday".

The UK-based broadcaster's main presenter Jake Humphrey later confirmed the news on Twitter, announcing BT's usual afternoon schedule had been cancelled ahead of the Premier League game between Leicester City and West Ham. Get well soon, Glenn'.

I'd like to send my best wishes.

A spokesman for Hoddle last night said: "The condition is serious but Glenn is now receiving specialist treatment and responding well".

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