Glenn Hoddle

Glenn Hoddle has been taken to hospital after having fallen seriously ill on Saturday and, while his condition is classified as serious, the former England manager is responding well to treatment.

"Our friend and colleague Glenn Hoddle was taken seriously ill at the BT Sport studio this morning, " presenter Jake Humphrey said on his Twitter account.

It goes without saying all of our thoughts, and I know all the best wishes of football fans around the world, are with Glenn and his family'.

"Hugely worrying news that Glenn Hoddle collapsed at the BT studios earlier".

"The condition is serious but Glenn is now receiving specialist treatment and responding well", the statement read.

Our thoughts are with him and his entire family.

He went on to manage Southampton, his beloved Spurs and then finally Wolverhampton Wanderers but since he left them in 2006 he has steadily built up a reputation as a respected pundit.

Growing caravan of migrants pushes deeper into Mexico
Mexico's Government has said throughout the past week that it would register the migrants and process requests for asylum. Mexico's federal government said on October 20 that almost "900 migrants" arrived in the country via unauthorized means.

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

I'd like to send my best wishes.

A club hero at Tottenham, where he played for the majority of a celebrated playing career before later becoming manager in 2001, Glenn Hoddle was capped 53 times by England and scored eight worldwide goals. "We're right with you, Glenn". The former AS Monaco player also had a spell at Chelsea as both a player and a manger which lead to the chance to lead his country. "All our thoughts are with Glenn Hoddle and his family".

In 2008, he founded the Glenn Hoddle academy in Spain which he set up in memory of his brother Carl, a former Tottenham Hotspur player who passed away aged 40.

Glenn has three children, Zara, Jamie and Zoe from his first marriage to Christine Stirling, who he was with from 1979 to 1998.

Hoddle has had a turbulent private life and split from his second wife, Vanessa, in 2015 after 15 years of marriage.

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